The Organization of American States Staff Federal Credit Union (OAS FCU) has successfully conducted a recent online election among their members for their Board of Directors and Credit Committee. Having online voting as the only voting channel, the Credit Union obtained a participation rate of over 16% in the May 2019 election. OAS FCU has been leveraging Scytl Online Voting since 2016, resulting in an increase in member participation.
Aligned with OAS FCU’s mission to promote free and fair elections, and to operate in the best interest of their members, the online voting channel helps to increase member engagement and ensure voter confidence through strong authentication, cryptographic protocols and voter privacy. With over 5,000 members, 40% of which live outside of the United States, ensuring overseas participation in elections is of the utmost importance for OAS FCU, and Scytl Online Voting has helped them achieve this goal.
