Protecting the personal safety of election workers
Smartmatic offers a unique program to help reduce the burden on your staff to mitigate the risk of coronavirus spread among employees in election facilities, such as tally centers, warehouses and help desks.
How does it work?
Working closely together with infectious disease experts, we take a holistic approach that reviews all election processes, procedures and communications using our election-process design methodology.
Following our assessment, we will provide you with:
1. Risk-mitigation report
This report includes all official guidelines and provides you with a clear identification of risks in your election facilities, the corresponding science-based mitigation measures and a shopping list with the materials and quantities you need.
2. Implementation support
Working with our mitigation team, we support you with implementing the recommended measures, and provide you with the services, materials, and products required for safe election operations.
3. All year-round consultation support
To adjust and adopt to new measures year-round, we will continue to provide you with the needed information and support.
Smartmatic also offers a Safe In-Person Voting program, which follows the same approach as Safe Election Worker, but focuses on mitigating the risk of infection for poll workers and voters at polling places.
