éKratos guarantees security in the identification of the participant, non-duplicity, secrecy of vote, security of the electronic vote and transparency for the actors concerned.
The census of voters can be established from the database of the organisation’s members or, alternatively, by means of a previous participation registration. In order to cast a virtual vote, it is necessary for the voter’s electronic mail to be available.
When it comes to administrations, it is advisable to create a participation registry in which every person contributes his or her electronic mail, where the voting requests will be duly conveyed to him or her.
ELECTIONS AND CONSULTATIONS
The Ékratos platform makes it possible to perform individual votes with a query and the corresponding answer options, as well as questionnaires with various queries and answers that stimulate public participation.
It also makes it possible to collect signatures for citizen initiatives.
The platform has also been designed to serve as a complement to the legal aspects contemplated in Law 10/2014, of 24th September, on non-referendum popular consultations and other forms of citizen participation, and to guarantee the implementation of the safety measures required in the Regulation on the development of Organic Law 15/1999, of 13th December, on personal data protection.
The results may be statistically disaggregated in accordance with the data supplied with the participation registry: gender, territorial areas, age groups, etc.
Ékratos guarantees anonymisation or dissociation in the treatment of personal data when producing statistics.
The “entity” user is in charge of controlling the voting platform, being able to create as many votes or consultations as desired, upload the census of voters, and authorize users with different profiles.
The “controller” user, created by the entity, is authorized to observe the voting process and see the results after the moment in which the electronic ballot box is opened, as well as the resulting statistical data.
The “voter” users are those that can access the platform to cast their votes, whether virtually via any computer or mobile device, or on-site at the voting tables available during the participatory process, if the organizing entity so decides.
