Scytl’s online voting platform received recognition from the Zero Project for its innovative and secure practices supporting persons with disabilities to vote independently, privately and securely through the iVote system.
Scytl iVote was amongst a group selected from over 318 projects nominated from across the globe by Zero Project’s network of +3,000 disability and accessibility experts. Implemented for the New South Wales and Western Australia elections in 2015 and 2017 respectively, iVote was used by over 285,000 voters.
This is the second time that Scytl receives recognition from Zero Project. In 2015, Scytl had been granted the award for Innovative Policies and Practices for its accessible eVoting project implemented in the State of Victoria, Australia in 2006 and 2010.
Zero Project is a joint initiative of the Essl Foundation, the World Future Council and the European Foundation Centre, that promotes the rights of persons with disabilities and also has the support of organizations such as the United Nations, IFES and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).
