Tampa, March 22, 2016 – Upon the closing of the second “Super Tuesday” on March 15, over 20 million registered voters from across the US continue to successfully leverage the use of Scytl election modernization technology for more efficient onsite voter check-in and verification, military voters secure electronic ballot receipt and delivery, and real-time online access to Democratic and Republican presidential preferences.
As the Presidential Preference and Primaries unfold across the US, the use of sophisticated election modernization technology continues to prove successful in the delivery of more efficient, secure and real-time electoral support across the various stages of the election process: from more efficient poll side voter-check-in and verification, to the timely and secure delivery of electronic ballots for military voters overseas through to the real-time access to results. The successful deployment and uptake of technology during the Presidential and General Primaries is setting the groundwork and creating the proof points necessary for elections offices looking to finalize technology decisions for the 2016 Presidential Election in November.
Key election modernization technology deployed during the March 1 and March 15 Presidential Primaries and General primaries includes:
- Scytl ePollBook: in Illinois, various counties are leading the way in the deployment of more comprehensive precinct management that not only provides efficient poll side voter-check-in, new same day registration and verification, but also election officials with centralized management and real-time visibility into their Primaries as they unfold.
- Scytl eBallot Delivery: as part of UOCAVA, deployed military personnel are provided more timely and secure access to their ballots. After completing absentee ballot requests, military voters from the states of Kentucky, New York and Virginia have received their ballots electronically and able to return the marked ballots through mail, fax, or email.
- Scytl Election Night Reporting: providing voters and political audiences ongoing election results online in real-time through an efficient, user-friendly and intuitive graphical interface, mapping and illustrating voter turnout, totals by vote type, and results by polling place.
