Centre Excursionista de Catalunya

The Centre Excursionista de Catalunya (CEC) is a sports and cultural entity founded in 1876 that has about 4,500 members and a total of 7 shelters. The CEC is organized by committees that conduct a wide range of activities and sporting and cultural outlets.

Challenge

Due to the restrictions in mobility and gatherings because of COVID-19, the Centre Excursionista de Catalunya decided to hold its AGM 2020 in a way that guarantees the voting rights of its 4500 members through remote participation and in accordance with the Catalan associations' law. They had certain requirements:

  • Members should be able to vote from their homes using their own devices.

  • To facilitate accessibility and avoid the digital gap, members could also go to the entity's headquarters and vote from devices provided by the entity.

Solution

To hold this

Vocdoni proposed the use of his voting system accessible via internet browsers.

The system generates an ephemeral private key for each user by using two attributes in a census.

Then users access to vote using their attributes

Toni Barnils, CEO of Centre Excursionista de Catalunya

The organization and development of our first telematic Annual General Meeting has been a success. Vocdoni has provided us with tailor-made solutions and has diligently and professionally resolved all the incidences. Our partners' satisfaction with monitoring and voting has been very high.

One of the decisive facts that led us to choose Vocdoni was that its platform guaranteed the participation and vote of all our members, with security, reliability and transparency in the whole process, including access and participation in the Annual General Meeting. We also valued the fact that the project was born in Catalonia.
