Online Voting - Hello, Florida!
posted June 29, 2015 by Jonathan
On-line voting for Home Owner Associations has just been approved in Florida. Let Association Voting (AV) provide your group with an Internet-based online voting system that will meet the criteria of that law while providing your members with an outstanding online voting experience. We can generate unique and secure credentials if you don’t have them (using our Voter Verified announcements), and, even if you don’t have everybody’s email, our Postcard Announcement service can send personalized postcard notifications to any member who does not have email. Groups who have participated in on-line voting with AV find that they have more votes and greater participation in their elections and policy voting activities, than previously with meetings requiring a quorum to proceed.
Contact us today for all of your election needs in the Sunshine State - we are excited for the opportunity to help your association vote online!

Introducing Proxy Voting
posted March 17, 2015 by Jonathan
“Proxies have increasingly become an important element in homeowners associations, and yet they remain a point of confusion for many board members. Proxies can be utilized to benefit the community aspect of a homeowners association, acting as a stand-in for absent residents. Such a tool as a proxy can be indispensable to a well-functioning HOA…” Source: AssociationHelpNow.com
Proxy voting expands the opportunities for home owners and condominium owners to participate in association governance and policy-making. More importantly, proxy ballots may be necessary to ensure a quorum is met. Typically a proxy is used when a member cannot attend a meeting. The proxy holder must appear at the meeting to cast a ballot on behalf of the proxy giver.
There are two types of proxies:
- A general proxy allows the proxy holder to vote without restriction, allowing him to exercise his discretion.
- A limited or directed proxy restricts the voting power of the proxy holder. The restriction may relate to voting at a specific event or on a specific issue or may direct how the proxy holder must vote,
AssociationVoting.com support both types of proxies. Want to move your proxies for your board election or annual meeting bylaw propositions online? Learn more
