To achieve a Confidential / Anonymous Voting System with Google Form, you will need Cre8tive eVoting Passcode System!
Google Form, a free online voting/polling or survey comes in handy when you are working on your stuff but it has limitations when it comes to confidential voting. You couldn’t control who could vote on your Google Form when you are publishing your Google Form in public or within your organization. In other words, anyone in your organization could fill in your Google Form once they obtained the link. When it comes to confidential or anonymous voting, you couldn’t collect the email addresses or any sorts of personal details that will expose personal choice. This leads to unknown validity of voting whether if there is double voting (a known bug in Google Form although a limit to 1 response is set) or voting by people that are not authorized.
Anonymous Voting System with Cre8tive eVoting Passcode System
The Cre8tive eVoting Passcode System helps make sure the voting process achieves some level of confidentiality without collecting participants’ personal details such as email and name while making sure the voting is done by authorized person is valid. The form owner could control who is authorized to vote by inputting email addresses in Google Sheet connecting to the eVoting Passcode Add-on. Before voting, the Form Owner could email the generation of 6-digit alphanumeric passcode to a list of email addresses via the Add-on. After that, the passcode email sent by the Form Owner will be deleted permanently automatically by the Add-On to ensure the confidentiality of the voters. Voters will need to input the case-sensitive passcode into the Google Form passcode column for verification before going on to the voting part. They will not proceed if the wrong passcode is input. The validity of the voting could be confirmed by checking the unique input of passcode submission.
