A fully secure election app in a matter of days

When the board at the All India Chess Federation (AICF) had to be chosen, there was no unanimous choice like in previous terms. That meant that the board had to go with a neutral entity to get their elections conducted.

By the order of the Madras High Court, Retd. Justice K Kannan was assigned the responsibility of organizing the election. However, with the pandemic running rampant and board members spread across India, he had to rely on technology to help him with this. The solution he was looking for needed flexibility, transparency, and security.

He stumbled on Zoho Creator and, with the help of the platform, was able to implement a system which embodied all the qualities he was searching for. With the help of this low-code solution, he was able to run the election and publish the results in record time.
