STAR Elections:

Use STAR Voting for your election or poll

STAR Elections is the branch of the STAR Voting project that focuses on real world implementation.

There is no better way to learn about a new idea than to try it!



Hosting your own election with STAR Voting is always free, and we offer free support to help you get set up. If you would rather we do the heavy lifting for you that's also available, with options for every budget and scenario.

Whether you are looking to host a casual poll, a small scale organizational election or vote, or a high-stakes election with gold standard level security, auditability, and credentialing we have a solution.


All proceeds from STAR Elections go directly to our 501c4 non-profit campaign fund. That means that adopting STAR Voting in the private sector directly funds our campaigns to adopt STAR Voting for real governmental elections!


There are a number of tools available to run a STAR election. Use the chart below to help find out what best fits your needs:

Case Studies

A number of organizations use STAR Voting for their elections. Take a look at our case studies here.

If you've used STAR Voting for a poll or election please let us know. Send us a short quote about your experience, write up a paragraph or two describing the election, the details, and the results, or send us a full blown case study with photos. We feature real world applications of STAR in our email blasts, on our websites, and when STAR is used for elections we try to collect the (anonymized) ballot data to add to our studies on voter behavior.
