Argentina 2019: Most accurate, fast and transparent provisional tally in Argentina’s history: Benefits

Transparency

The solution provided by Smartmatic used several mechanisms to facilitate auditability and protect the integrity of the vote. Both political parties and authorities were able to monitor the entire process, from the digitization of telegrams to the transmission and subsequent publication of results. The comparison of the closing tally reports made by the polling center authorities versus the tally reports published in the system allowed real-time audits.

Security

To ensure the confidentiality, integrity, access control and auditability of the electoral solution, Smartmatic implemented a series of controls based on the highest international security standards. This included best practices from the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA, USA).

Speed

With Smartmatic election technology, Argentina announced election results in a scant few hours after the close of voting, a remarkable achievement compared to its previous electoral process.
