Technology makes votes count at religious event




A unique wireless voting system was used recently at Church House Conference Centre, Westminster at the annual national assembly of the Church of England; The General Synod.
 
In total, 469 leading figures used the audience response system Agenda, produced by IML, to register their votes on high-profile religious issues, including the ordainment of women bishops.
 
As a legally binding digital voting system, the Synod has the ability to use the results generated by the technology to pass measures that can result in the creation of new rules and laws.
 
“General Synod is a very prestigious occasion, one that pulls together all of our resources at Church House,” said the venue’s general manager Robin Parker. “The audience response system is an integral element of the meeting and part of a very complex AV setup that is also rigged for live broadcast.
 
“Church House owns the largest IML voting system in the world,” he continued, “and our staff will take to the road with it to provide it for the second annual session of the Synod held at the University of York in July.”
 
The General Synod ran from 9-13 February at Church House Conference Centre.
