Security and Anonymity

The online voting is conducted using servers that are owned and operated by the Association. Members are required to authenticate prior to casting their votes to ensure they are eligible to vote, and have not already cast their ballots or requested paper copies.

Though we know who you are at the time of voting, and record which ballots you submit, there is no connection to the time that you submit each ballot, or with your vote values. Nor is there any way for the Association to make a connection between members and vote values.

Your communication with the vote server is encrypted using an SSL certificate, and a firewall protects the network at a low level of abstraction.
