What we are doing to slow the spread of Coronavirus
As the world rallies to cope with the unprecedented impact of Coronavirus, we hope that you, your family, your coworkers and your community are healthy and staying safe by following the guidance of your local officials. As a society, we must employ our inventiveness and follow the advice of healthcare professionals, including social distancing guidelines, to minimize the negative impact of this crisis.
At Smartmatic we are using our technological expertise to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus and to ensure that business and government can continue operations. We are focused on our core strengths in three areas:
The coronavirus crisis challenges democratic institutions to remain stable and productive. The best way to do that is by continuing to serve the electorate with fair and transparent elections. This requires innovative approaches to avoid delaying events while ensuring the safety of voters and all election workers.
Smartmatic recognizes that jurisdictions may not be able to drastically adjust their voting methods for their next election. The best course of action for many jurisdictions may be to focus on finding an appropriate balance between scaling up vote by mail services and making in-person voting and operations as safe as possible.

Folio’s ‘Mobile Health Passport’ platform enables health status registration, health passport issuance and verification services for governments, health entities and ancillary services.
The Health Passport generates credentials that are secured locally on a person’s smartphone, under the individual’s complete control. It provides confirmed identity, and that the holder has a certificate of immunity that is current at point in time. The platform’s internal security ensures that no certificate can be spoofed, tampered with, or used by another person.
Despite this crisis, there are essential functions and services that must continue. Smartmatic can help ensure these activities are as safe as possible for those who must continue to travel and be in public places for the good of all. As we reactivate society to normal functions, it would be very important to reduce exposure to the virus.
