Brasilia, November 23, 2015 – Scytl, the worldwide leader in election modernization, online voting and eGovernance technology, announces the successful delivery of 3 Council fully online elections in October and November ensuing end-to-end security, auditability and accessibility. Over 1 million voters were able to securely and privately vote in online elections for the Federal Economic Council (COFECON, Federal Council of Pharmacists (CFF) and the Federal Accounting Council (CFC) leveraging the industry´s most secure and innovative election technology.
Scytl worked with the different Councils to take their initial election modernization efforts one step further. Innovation is not new to the CFC, which has now held four online elections. But this year, in addition to leveraging leading-edge secure online voting, over 30.000 voters were able to benefit from the implementation of online authentication via the integration of Digital Certification into the process.
“The use of Digital Certification provides even greater reliability to the election process, a goal that was successfully achieved,” says Aécio Prado, Vice President of CFC Operational Development. “For us, it is unthinkable to return to traditional on-site elections for the CFC. Online elections are the future,” he concludes.
And these three councils are not alone in their progress of innovative democracy. Online voting is a growing worldwide trend with other countries where Scytl Online Voting success milestones prove the maturity of technology and security:
