Smartmatic was founded on the simple idea that technology can help ensure the integrity of elections.
Established in Florida in the wake of the 2000 election, Smartmatic focused on building the most secure, accessible and easy-to-use election technologies designed to safeguard the process from start to finish. Today, Smartmatic is the world’s largest, most advanced and innovative elections technology company.
From Chicago to Manila. From Utah to Belgium. And from Los Angeles to London – since 2003 Smartmatic has successfully designed and implemented secure voting technologies for election commissions on five continents in 25 countries. We’ve recorded and tabulated more than 4.6 billion votes with zero security breaches.
As an approved U.S. Department of Defense vendor and a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security Council for the Election Infrastructure Subsector, Smartmatic does not rely on any single application to secure the integrity of elections. We utilize multiple layers of protection, security measures and control mechanisms throughout our voting systems. From tamper-proof data collection to end-to-end encryption to fully auditable logs, our technology safeguards votes at every step. And we are the only company in the world that provides triple check verification of voter intent, ensuring that the human readable paper record, barcode and electronic record all match before any vote can by officially cast.
Committed to innovation, Smartmatic invests substantial resources in three R&D centers in the Americas, Europe and Asia. We have deployed the world’s most technologically advanced and highly trusted internet voting solution. By using cutting-edge technologies like blockchain to enable online voting, Smartmatic envisions a not-too-distant future that eliminates vulnerable absentee paper ballots and ensures that military personnel, diplomats, business people and others can vote securely and seamlessly from anywhere in the world.
In addition to election technologies, Smartmatic also provides solutions for governments, including identity management systems and an innovative air quality management solution.
