Saturnia is a gated community with hundreds of luxurious single-family residences located in Boca Raton, Florida. With top schools and a beautiful landscape, it’s a popular place, and successful meetings help make it possible.
However, given the complications of COVID-19 and new requirements for physical distancing, their annual Homeowners Association meeting was looking like a major challenge. So, they turned to GetQuorum for advanced electronic voting.
With this service, users can easily participate in meetings from the comfort of their home. This eases the logistical burden on Property Managers, and greatly increases turnout.
Here’s what they had to say:
“This is the first time I have ever done electronic voting, your platform is very easy to use. Not only is it easy for the residents it’s easy for management and it removes such a heavy burden. I thought that I would have issues with being so hands off, but you guys are so responsive and on top of everything that I quickly felt comfortable.
One of the issues with electronic voting is gathering the consents, the way your company offers electronic consents is revolutionary. Roughly ¾ of the community enrolled, and during our vote quorum was achieved within 24 hours.
Usually quorum is achieved the day of the meeting after multiple office calls to homeowners asking them to return their proxy and ballot.
I am so thankful for all your help during this process.”
- Lissette Vasquez, Property Manager Saturnia
As you can see, the service was a hit. First, it’s easy to use for both owners and management. The experience is as straightforward as possible, and built to be understandable for all.
Second, gathering electronic consent has been greatly simplified. This allowed for 219 votes to be cast before the meeting even started, thus ensuring quorum was met quickly.
Finally, of the 396 units, 317 ended up consenting to electronic voting. This shows that amongst owners, there is a strong desire to be able to vote electronically. From what we’ve seen, it’s likely that this interest will continue moving forward.
All in all, electronic voting at Saturnia was a big success. It was adopted widely and easily, and allowed them to conduct important business and keep their community in top shape. If you’re interested in seeing how GetQuorum can help your building or community, get in touch today.
