Tampa & Barcelona, January 20, 2016 – Scytl, the worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernization, successfully deployed Scytl Election Night Reporting in Cumberland County, New Jersey. As part of Cumberland County’s strategy in 2015, the county´s election office engaged in a plan to update its election process, including but not limited to internal and office technology for the 2015 and 2016 elections.
One of the main duties of the election office is the timely and efficient release of election results. As such, Scytl Election Night Reporting was the logical extension as it provides seamless election results uploads for the election office and real-time election results posted online for all voters to review.
“Our constituents have provided positive feedback. In particular, people have commented on the ease of use of the system as well as simplistic, yet thorough information included in the program,” states Celeste M. Riley, County Clerk Cumberland County, New Jersey.
Cumberland County New Jersey is home to more than 87,000 registered voters with an average voter turnout of 30% in congressional, county, and local elections. Although different from the 2014 general election which involved Federal Senate and Congressional races, the 2015 contest resulted in over 19,000 cast ballots.
The election results were seamlessly uploaded to the Election Night Reporting platform and were readily available to all constituents within the county on Election Night. Looking forward, the county expects a higher voter turnout during the 2016 Presidential Election which will include various local, county freeholders, and congressional elections.
