- VOTEism is an opinion poll app. You need to enable location on your mobile to vote. (In the earlier version of VOTEism, we required you to verify your mobile number to vote. We have now removed this for enhanced voter privacy. Instead we use a combination of hardware signals and other heuristics to uniquely fingerprint a device).
- You can change your vote anytime. Only your latest vote will be counted.
- Encrypted votes are downloaded to a separate non-cloud system where they are decrypted with the private key.
- An 'anonymised-unencrypted' vote is stored per user for providing near real-time statistics. The tally of the 'anonymised-unencrypted' votes is matched to the tally of the 'encrypted-decrypted' votes. This acts as an additional checksum.
- Anonymized and aggregated results are published on the VOTEism mobile apps.
- VOTEism is funded by VOTEism INC. We do not accept any outside funding in exchange for equity.
- Our main costs are server bills and the cost of the team involved in building and managing VOTEism's mobile and web apps.
- In the event we are unable to meet our costs, we may seek financial support by launching a public donations page.
