How does it work?

Using Whale is easy...
1 Register and create a poll
You can create different kinds of polls for different situations: date polls, elections, open or sealed-ballot polls, open-proposal polls where participants can add their own candidates...
You will for sure find a poll that suits your needs.
2 Invite people to vote
Send the link to the participants you want to invite. They will then be able to express their opinions about the proposals.
Depending on the situation, they will be asked to approve / disapprove candidates, rank alternatives, or evaluate them.
3 Visualize the results
When you are ready, you can go to the result page that will help you figure out which decisions are the best for your group.
Whale uses an adapted voting procedure for each situation: approval voting, range voting, Condorcet voting...
