vTools.Voting is a project to allow members to submit votes in their Section/Chapter/Affinity Group Officer Elections online (please note that this is different from the general IEEE elections). The vTools.Voting project is offered by Membership and Geographic Activities as a part of the MGA vTools portfolio that provides sections with a set of volunteer-developed tools to assist them in managing their ongoing activities. Among system features vTools.Voting offers voter authentication via IEEE web accounts; intuitive user interface for creating election ballots; ability to create professionally looking ballots; ability to send voting reminders via e-mail; IEEE branded look and feel.
