“As with most Election Administrators, we wanted to make finding election information easy for our voters. Not only were we able to provide our voters with the information they seek, but we were able to reduce the number of calls made to the office around election time. Scytl Voter Education and Scytl Election Night Reporting streamlined our election procedures and we received nothing but positive feedback from the media and voters.” Bridgette Escobedo, Bastrop County Election Administrator
