24,700 voting machines were deployed across the entire region to capture the vote of the 7,895,484 voters
This was the seventh electoral process in Venezuela to use Smartmatic’s auditable voting technology.
This referendum was held to amend 69 articles of the 1999 constitution. It was defeated by just 51 to 49%.
On April 20th, the Smartmatic voting solution was used in the election of members to the Insular Council of Curacao.
On 3 December, 2006, Smartmatic again brought its technological know-how and expertise to one of Venezuela's key electoral events.
This election was a complex one due to the number of candidates and offices to be elected; however, the process was quick, fluid and problem-free.
