The system has registered, validated and presented more than 25,000 candidates in statutory elections. The system is fully documented and under continuous control of independent audit organisations.
Flexible and easily accessible candidate nomination system
Assembly Candidacy is very easy to use for candidates, nominees and administrators and at the same time ensures a complete documentation of the nomination process, e.g. registered nominees, candidacy status and final confirmation of candidacy.
Assembly Candidacy can be configured to comply with all common statutory or non-statutory requirements. Moreover, the front end of the system can be designed to mirror the brand-ID of the election customer.
The system is configured to comply with the statutory or non-statutory requirements for a candidacy nomination. The system validates, according to selected validation parameters, e.g. member status, district, number of nominees. The system supports use of digital signature.
Each potential candidate creates a personal login page to administer their nomination process. On this page, you will find status in nomination process. Furthermore, the page provides the possibility to complete mandatory and voluntary candidate texts, upload an image, video, SoMe links, etc.
Candidate admin. page
Assembly Candidacy contains extensive time functions to ensure that all deadlines are met; deadline for registration of candidacy/nominees, deadline for publishing validated candidates and the deadline for editing candidate texts. Candidates and system administrators are continuously notified according to upcoming and passed deadlines.
In many cases, the candidacy system is used as the "main election site", containing all relevant information regarding the election, incl. link to the election system, results, etc. Assembly Candidacy contains a CMS system in which it is possible to select and configure various functions and static pages in order to improve the candidate and voter experience.
Assembly Candidacy is designed to protect personally sensitive data throughout the nomination process; from registration of nomination data and system storage to irreversible destruction of personally sensitive data. Data is solely used for the validation of the candidate and is not distributed in any form to third parties, complying with GDPR.
Assembly Candidacy is accessible and easy to use for all electoral groups, electoral boards, observers and auditing organisations. For groups without the possibility or desire to go online, the system can be configured to include a traditional paper-based nomination process.
