We have improved on last year’s text voting with a more streamlined, secure voting method. Here are the instructions.
- Take out your smartphone or other web-enabled device (ie. something you use to connect to the Internet such as an iPhone, Android, tablet, a teenager, etc.)
- Open your web browser (Safari, Chrome, etc.). Do not type in “www.” or “https://”
- Type in the URL/address bar: edsdvote.com
- Click “Vote Now”
- Enter your unique voting ID number. (For practice, enter any four-digit number. Your real voting ID will be on the back of your name badge.)
- Make your selections by checking boxes on the online form.
- Review your answers before you hit “Submit.” Once you submit your answers, you cannot change them.
- Close the web page.
- Put your device away and see if your neighbor needs help.
- Text voting is for lay and clergy delegates only. If you are a visitor, you are not allowed to vote. You will not receive a unique voting ID.
- Unique voting IDs will be printed on the back of your name badge that you pick up at registration. Your badge will identify you as a voting delegate.
- Bring your smartphone or tablet to convention. Bring your charger too.
