The ElectionsOnline voting system may be configured to send emails to voters on the start date of an election informing them that voting is open and providing a link to the ballot. For years clients have had the ability to download a report of any emails from that mailing that went undelivered. That has now been replaced with a report showing full engagement.
ElectionsOnline is merging with Skypunch Technology. That means clients should begin immediately instructing their voters to whitelist email originating from the skypunch.tech domain to ensure the same deliverability as always.
