What do you do when COVID-19 disrupts your AGM and member voting? Investigate remote online voting for AGMs, says UK Engage.
If you have had to re-think the way you will administer your AGM or EGM in light of the Coronavirus, you have probably considered taking the meeting ‘online’ via conference software, but what about voting for resolutions and candidates? Leading independent scrutineer UK Engage is working with its customers to provide real-time, remote online voting for AGMs where the clients articles allow for.
Some AGMs are being adjourned or postponed due to the disruption the pandemic has caused. However, as experts in the provision of online AGM voting and other democratic solutions, we can provide an organisation’s members the ability to vote remotely as part of the normal AGM proxy process, as per their organisation’s articles. If appropriate, conference software can be used alongside our remote online voting system, to allow virtual attendees to vote online (in real-time as they would at the meeting), in a safe manner.
Using our remote online voting solution for AGMs during the virtual meeting, participants will be able to vote in real-time via a smartphone, tablet or PC in the comfort and safety of their home. Voters are authenticated prior to casting their vote, which complies with the UK Companies Act 2006
legislation requirements (including any poll on-demand). As part of our overall online AGM voting solution, we also cover all proxy voting processes, helping reach any required quorum for the meeting, if required as part of your organisation’s articles.
Wherever possible we want to help maintain normality for our customers and other organisations who find themselves in a situation where an AGM is in question during these unprecedented times. If you would like to talk to us about how you implement remote online AGM voting into your virtual meeting, please give us a call or drop us an email. Although we are working remotely, we are very much here to help with your online or printed AGM requirements. You can read our operations statement here >>
Online AGM voting is easy to set up and cost-effective. Call or email us today to find out more 0345 293 5555

We wish you, your organisation and your members all the very best during this time.
