Welcome to the elections specialists.
Hot topic now during the Corona crisis: do you want to use an affordable, reliable and safe voting tool for, for example, an association, Members Meeting, works council or participation council? Then use our voting tool, contact us or go to online voting tool
We’d be delighted to assist you. We specialise entirely in preparing, organising and publicising elections. We do so for clients including the Musical Awards, the Zoover Awards, the MKB Innovatie Top 100 (KVK), the voting for the Most Beautiful Natural Area (Ministry of Financial Affairs, the Mantelzorg Awards and the Company of the Year Elections (NOC*NSF & Rabobank).
We were tasked by the Ministry of Financial Affairs with the elections for the ‘Most Beautiful Natural Area in the Netherlands’. These were some fantastic elections, with as many as 400 publications, 87,903 voters, 31,000 views of videos featuring Floortje Dessing, and the announcement of the winner in DWDD by Mr Pieter van Vollenhove. We were presented with a Cross Media Award and a Cannes Lions nomination for our work on this election.
Vote Company's online voting tool has been used successfully for years for, for example, General Members' Meetings of associations, foundations and cooperatives, VVEs, Works Councils and Participation Councils. During the Corona crisis, decision-making can proceed through online voting. A separate website has been created for this digital voting tool for private groups / persons entitled to vote: www.onlinevotingtool.com
The Musical Awards are presented live on NPO1 each year. In addition to the professional jury prizes, the AD Audience Award is also handed out. The public votes on the election website during the weeks prior to this. Voting can also be carried out by SMS during the TV programme. Once the official has counted up the votes, the winner is announced on live TV. We’re proud that we have been able to facilitate the Audience Award since 2015.
What does the Dutch public consider do be the Best Outing? This question is answered each year with the votes for the Best Outing. We have been organising and facilitating this election on behalf of the Press Group since 2017. It is an audience prize in which the nominated outing with the most votes wins the title in each category.
We organise and facilitate the elections for the Company of the Year Award on behalf of NOC*NSF and Rabobank. Sports and cultural organisations may nominate themselves, the public can vote, and the expert jury selects the national winners. With well-known athletes and musicians as ambassadors of the election, videos are made with a call for associations. The elections are a major success!
Innovation is an important cornerstone of the Chamber of Commerce. The MKB Innovation Top 100 has, for many years, attracted the attention of the most innovative MKB companies. With effect from 2018, the winner is not only selected by an expert jury, but there is also an Audience Award. During a voting period of a few weeks, the public were able to vote. 92% of the nominees actively campaigned. The scope of the election and the impact were thus far greater. Vote Company facilitates these elections on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce.
The Mantelzorg Awards is a fantastic example of elections with a significant social value. The election offers informal carers the opportunity to put their most important support in the spotlight. With Irene Moors as the ambassador, the elections create a high level of positive energy for caregivers. Vote Company organises and facilitates these elections on behalf of the Stichting Waardevolle Mantelzorg.
Every sports club has then: club heroes. Volunteers who do everything for their club. With the election of Club Heroes for amateur sports, we have been searching for the best, most loyal and most special sporting volunteers every year since 2015. Vote Company developed this election concept in collaboration with De Persgroep and we are organising and facilitating this wonderful election on behalf of De Persgroep.
We’re good at what we do
Live Voting & Realtime Interaction (private and public)
Reliable private group voting tools!
In addition to the public elections, which have an open character, we offer a perfect solution for when voting is only allowed by those entitled to vote. This is also possible with weighting and the timing for answering the questions can run parallel to, for example, a General Members Meeting!
Fortunately, during the Corona crisis, a lot of decision-making by private groups / voters can simply take place via Vote Company's reliable and safe online voting tool.
The Vote Company voting tool has been further developed over the past 10 years. Because there is now a great demand for digital voting, we have launched a separate website for this: www.onlinevotingtool.com
We see that more people vote online than when they still had to be in one place for, for example, a General Members Meeting. Greater involvement of members and more support for the decisions taken thanks to the use of an online voting tool!
More info can be found on the website for online voting!

Custom Election Platform & Voting Tools
Over the years, we have continuously developed our election platform, and we’ll always continue to do so. This makes our platform reliable and flexible, allowing us to facilitate any kind of elections. Every election, of course, is different. Would you like an election with nominees per municipality, per province, nationally or even worldwide? One or multiple ballots? Provide points for improvement and assessment figures in a benchmark report for nominees? All of this is possible! Our voting tools are responsive and suitable for all devices: mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop. Of course, the main social media tools are integrated into our voting tools, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram and Whatsapp. These means that people can share their nominations or vote with a click of a button.
Our voting platform is scalable and reliable. Large numbers of votes at the same time, for example during TV broadcasts, are no problem at all. We can design an election website in any style you want, but we also have templates. We can place the voting platform on a separate URL or integrate it into your own website or domain.

Organizing & Facilitating
Our activities differ per election. We can organize elections from A to Z and thus completely unburden clients. But we can also facilitate parts of elections, such as just a voting platform. We are happy to discuss with you what you want to do yourself and which activities we perform. Our services are modular!
Publicise your elections for a greater impact!
After all, we know like no other how you can use the power of an election. We use our experience with over 100 elections to determine what works, and what doesn’t. We maintain a sophisticated communication strategy every election before, during and afterwards. This allows us to reach, inform, inspire and motivate the major target groups. These target groups are often celebrities, media professionals, voters and stakeholders.
