The Election Services Division

VR Election Services provides turnkey voting services using telephone, Internet and mail-in ballots - in local, regional, statewide and national elections. We originated the "multiple voting process" concept in 1993, under contract with the Automotive Services Association, to administer their national election.

"Simple and Effective." This is what our clients tell us about their election experience with VR Election customer services. We use a hands-on approach to every aspect of the election process. Our proprietary software, time tested best practices, and careful supervision of our highly trained personnel ensures a smooth, secure, accurate election for our clients. We do what we do best, complete election services - so you can do what you do best - concentrate on membership services.

VR Election Services has earned our reputation as the leading American election company, with our razor sharp focus on four areas most important to our customer. First and foremost, every election is governed by your rules and by-laws. Second, we implement solutions based on these rules, which are certified and challenge-resistant. Third, because we purchase in large scale and manage your entire election process from our 18,000 square foot "secure" custom facility in Dallas, we are extremely cost effective. Fourth, we have the know-how to use unique methods to drive down your postage expenses. Also, we are a CASS-certified mailer, authorized by the U.S. Postal Service.
