Protect Voter Privacy
Scytl eBallot Delivery is the only solution in the market that truly protects the privacy of voters and the secrecy of intermediate results.

Scytl’s on-screen ballot marking utility implements a specialized masking protocol in the voter’s device that ensures that voters’ choices are never known by the online platform or by any third-party device, preventing system administrators or malicious attackers from violating voters’ privacy.
Ballot Choice Barcode
Scytl’s Ballot Choice Barcode (BCB) addresses the issue of duplicating ballots for election officials. The BCB provides an automated conversion of onscreen marked ballots into a 2D barcode, allowing the ballot to be returned via email, fax, or postal mail and quickly and accurately duplicated for tabulation by an optical scanner, without compromising the voter´s privacy.
Absentee Data Barcode
Scytl’s Absentee Data Barcode (ADB) addresses the issue of having to key voter data manually into a voter registration system from absentee ballot application requests which were completed online and printed for postal return with signature.
Election officials can quickly scan the ADB on the returned application into their voter registration system. ADB expedites both the inclusion of new overseas voter information into the list of registered voters and its accuracy while ensuring the integrity of country-specific rules for voter eligibility are adhered to. ADB utilizes a standard 2D handheld barcode scanner for processing received absentee voter envelopes and Election Markup Language (EML) which is a common data format endorsed by Governments.
