The largest elections in the largest university in Russia
Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA) is one of the largest universities in Russian and Europe. RANEPA has 64 branches and 180,000 students throughout Russia.
Election of a Chairman to the Academy’s Student Council
These were to be the largest elections in the history of the student government at RANEPA. Eight polling stations were located in Academy buildings across Moscow. For the first time, not only undergraduate but also master’s and postgraduate students were able to take part in the voting.
The voting lasted 12.5 hours; there were 3 candidates and 14,400 voters.
Online voting with Polys
The Student Election Commission at RANEPA used the Polys system to ensure voting proceeded as reliably and transparently as possible, and the results were calculated in the shortest possible time. As a result, 30 hours were saved on processing the results.
«Thanks to the Polys system, we managed to hold the largest elections in the history of student self-government. The reliable and convenient voting format were appreciated by all the students.»
