The voting system is based on matrix, and lets you anonymously, remotely and securely vote in GMs. Following a tremendously successful trial at a committee lunch which especially highlighted the ease of setting it up we decided to create the following guide to simplify matters even more!

Getting the app!

The following post describes how to get the app. On a laptop you can however just click here and click log in with SAML to login.

Once you have the app!

Once you then have the app and are successfully logged in clicking this link should let you join the relevant room. In the incredibly unlikely event that the link fails to work try this one here.
