Do it online! Voting made easy.

SAMA is very excited to present its first online nomination and voting process to the members of its Transkei Branch. Access to technology and the Internet have allowed for unprecedented information exchange possibilities and afforded SAMA the ability to offer its members a new way to participate in a free and fair election process. Online voting offers a secure, fast, cost-effective and eco-friendly alternative to the traditional expensive and time consuming paper-based balloting systems.

With the top-notch security of an independently managed and audited service, SAMA's voting members can be assured of tamper-proof voter authentication and vote counting systems, a convenient online nomination and voting system, a sophisticated ballot and even a paper audit trail.

The online voting system will involve 3 processes:

  • An online nomination process of 17 days - 8 May (08h00) to 24 May 2012 (23h59)
  • An acceptance of nomination period of 6 days - 25 May to 30 May 2012
  • An online election process of 10 days - 1 June (08h00) to 10 June 2012 (23h59)
