What is it?
Blind voting is a way for groups to vote on issues without the votes influencing
others. Blind voting is often implemented as an electronic meeting system.
How do I do it?
Most blind voting implementations involve electronic meeting systems, specially
equipped conference rooms where every seat has a terminal. These terminals
are connected to a large display where each person's entries can be viewed.
However, all entries are anonymous--no entry can be attributed to a particular
person. These entries can be ideas or concepts, or votes.
In this way, meetings can't be taken over by overly strident or commanding
people. Individuals who often are not very active in regular meetings can
contribute even if they are normally shy.
When should I use this technique?
This technique is best used to ensure equality among team members in brainstorming
and voting sessions.
