Here's an excerpt from
the project description for uniVote:
uniVote system has been created as a tool
to facilitate lives of people who like relying on their teams
in making quick decisions. It is simple and fast, and will work
equally well for a CEO with a T1 connection, and a 15 year-old
kid with a 56K modem, in any browser they fancy.
After going through a one-step
quick registration with uniVote, you will be automatically logged
into the system and start using it right away. Using uniVote, you
can create nearly any type of a poll or an election and request
a group of people of any size to vote on an issue that you will
The system is indeed simple and
truly universal. Here's why:
1. You are the one who specifies
the question: you can put the question in any form or shape, and
make it as long as you want. No limits. At all.
2. You are the one who specifies
the choices. Again, you are not limited to the number, form or shape
of the choices - you phrase them, and make as many of them as you
3. You specify the type of the
vote. There are just about 4 ways to vote on an issue - and any
one of them can be used in uniVote. They are as follows:
Selection - the respondent to the vote must select only
one of the choices you have provided.
Multiple Selection - the respondent
to the vote is allowed to select more than one choice - in fact,
he can cast a vote for every single choice, if he is that indifferent.
Ranking - the respondent to the
vote must rank the choices and put them in order.
Allocation - The respondent to
the vote must distribute a given number of points (usually 100
times the number of choices) amongst the choices.
4. You specify the people that
you would like to vote on the issue by entering their e-mail addresses.
The number of people who can be listed is not limited - and that
way you can conviniently limit the vote to a certain group of people
- it will not be public and its results will not be unnecessarily
altered by a third party.
5. You do not have to inform every
single person about it - the uniVote will take care of it by sending
out polite e-mails on your behalf inviting people to vote and telling
them where to go to do that.
6. You can impose a deadline on
the vote - those who are responsible and considerate, will vote
on time; those who pass on it will not be counted.
7. You yourself don't have to know
how to count, tally, average, compute, keep track, or otherwise
make sure that you get everyone's opinion - the system will take
care of that, presenting you with results in convenient format with
visual stimuli (progress bars `~) ).
Though uniVote is currently
offline for a transfer to a more reliable database engine and additional
reworking, you can take a look at some screenshots:
