Scytl to provide e-voting in national elections in the United Arab Emirates

Jul 4, 2011

Scytl, in partnership with Logica, has been awarded a contract by the UAE Ministry for the Federal National Council Affairs to provide Pnyx in the national elections of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to be held in September 2011.  This election will represent the first public election in which remote e-voting is used in an Arab country.  E-voting will be deployed countrywide as the only voting method in this election and will be used in conjunction with the country’s national e-ID card provided by the Emirates Identity Authority (EIDA).  Along with its secure e-voting technology, Scytl will also provide its electronic pollbook to help manage the electoral roll in all seven Emirates and provide ‘vote anywhere’ capabilities during the election.
