Success story

Povolzhsky Institute of Management named after P.A. Stolypin

Povolzhsky Institute of Management is a branch of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration.

What

Student council elections for faculties and dormitories

Elections were held in four faculties of the institute and in three dormitories. There was a total of 29 candidates and 1,950 voters.

The previous year, similar paper-based elections, including vote counting, took 60 electoral commission members more than three weeks.

Solution

Online election with Polys

The number of election commission members was reduced from 60 to 12. Instead of the time-consuming paperwork that usually accompanies preparations for such elections, they were able to spend more time distributing election information to students. As a result, turnout was 65%, which was 20% higher than the previous year.
