vTools Voting allows you to send emails to voters directly from the ballot. When a ballot is created, the creator can send up to three (3) emails, and emails can only be sent once every 72 hours. We recommend that when creating a ballot, you wait at least one (1) hour before sending the first email in order to give the system time to create the voter list in the backend.

Note: These same steps can be followed for both Elections and Motions.

To send an email to voters, log in to with your IEEE Account.

Click on “Ballot Dashboard” and navigate to the ballot from which you wish to send an email.

Click on “Manage”:
