The first method is suitable for any public votes requiring a high level of transparency, security and reliability, for example, public primaries or debates in political parties, trade union ballots, etc.

To create a public vote with a high level of security, use a combination that uses unique codes and the "Presentation view" button.

Create a vote in the Polys Organizer panel as shown in the previous chapter and choose voter access — unique codes. To make a vote accessible to your audience, after launch click the "Presentation view" button and drag the tab to the shared screen. The audience will be able to see a short voting link and also a QR code for convenience. Turnout will also be visible on the screen.

Voters need to scan the QR code or enter the voting link in their browsers and enter their unique code. A code can only be used to vote once.

The results will be displayed on the shared screen (top 5), on voters’ phone/tablet screens and in the Organizer Panel after voting ends.

The second method is less security-oriented and suitable for voting at public conferences, meetings, and other similar events where it may be necessary to conduct a quick poll after a speech or presentation.

To create this type of public vote you need to fill in all the fields on the Polys Organizer panel as shown in the previous chapter and choose voter access — public vote.

Once the vote is launched you will receive a direct link to the vote. After that, everything is the same as described above.

WARNING: the second voting method is still at the experimental stage and not suitable for serious elections. It is more suitable for conferences and meetings where the organizer trusts the audience. This is because by clicking on the same link from another browser or by clearing the browser’s cache it is possible to vote more than once.
