Voting Instructions for Plenary Senate Meetings
The Faculty Senate will be piloting a new voting system for use during plenary Senate meetings. Voting will no longer be done within Mediasite. As a current Faculty Senator, you have already been registered to vote. In order to use the new system, it will be necessary to open a new web browser (Mozilla FireFox, Google Chrome, etc.). In addition, you should also keep Mediasite open to avoid having to reopen Mediasite after voting. A Senate office staff member will be monitoring the incoming votes, and your votes will be anonymous, meaning that your name and/or email are not in any way connected to your vote, even though you are logged in.
  • To vote, please open a new web browser and type in this URL:
    • Click on "Sign In" in the upper right-hand corner
    • Enter your entire email address (e.g.,
    • Enter the password senate (Text Case Sensitive-Must use all lower case letters)
    • Click "Sign in with my Poll Everywhere account" or press the enter key on your keyboard
    • The poll will appear on your screen when the vote is ready to be taken
    • Select A to accept or B to reject
      • Your vote will automatically be recorded and will be visible to the presenter immediately

If you have questions concerning the voting procedure, please email Anna Butler at
