In preparation for allowing online voter registration,
we have a three-step process set up to clean existing
records in the database. Existing voters are
not required to go through this process,
but they will not be able to make changes to their
records on their own without doing so. Existing users
that do go through the process will be able to keep their
email addresses current, update their physical location
information, keep their preferred handle current, etc.
The three steps are:
- Get your activation key
- This step has no security on it at all, and it
turns off all mailings and voting privileges associated
with that email address. If you know that your
Convergence voting information is going to more
than one email address that you control, you can
use this option to turn off an address by not
continuing on to the next step with this option.
This option also sends
one final email with the activation key used by the
second step. After that, no more automated email will
that address, including actual vote keys, until you
complete the next step with the activation key in the
All automated Convergence-related emails come from
firstname.lastname@example.org. Please set your spam filters
accordingly. You may resend this activation email as
often as you like, and is the first step to try
if you suspect you are not getting automated emails
from the Convergence voting system.
- Activate your account
- Enter the activation key you received in the
email from the first step. This will reactivate
your account and allow general emails to be sent to
you. This is the minimum step required to reach a
level of function that will allow you to vote. Doing
this step will set a temporary password on your full
record and mail that password to you in an email with
the same sender and server information from above.
Using this option constitutes permission for the
Convergence vote committee to send you automated
mailing for purposes of running the Convergence vote.
- Log into your full account
- Initially, you'll need to log in using the
password sent to you in email. Once you've logged in,
you may set your own password. The full account will
allow you to view the information retained about you
and change most of it, including the email address
used to contact you, your preferred handle, your
location, etc. The only information required to be
present is email address and password.
