I am passionate about empowering citizens through technology. Electronic voting is good for democracy. It guarantees greater security, efficiency and transparency. Not to mention much faster results.
When nations switch from a manual to a technology based system, the change can generate controversy. In particular, creating opposition from those who distrust technology, to those with a vested interest in staying with manual ‘systems’, or both.
Those that defend manual voting resort to one of three claims: the technology is flawed; the technology is less secure; the provider is not trustworthy. In the case of Smartmatic and our technology, all three are false. As a company we invest heavily in maintaining the integrity of our technology, which has never failed and never has been hacked.
We are proud of the contribution our technology has made to modernising and strengthening democracies around the world, as well as the recognition we have received from independent observers at the UN, EU and The Carter Center, all of whom have declared that Smartmatic has “the best voting system in the world”.
If you have a question about our voting technologies, or how we work as a company, that is not addressed below, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
