Smartmatic

United States elections 2005 - 2018

During the 2005 and 2006 election cycles, Smartmatic sold around 60,000 voting devices and provided support services to more than 307 jurisdictions across 16 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Nevada, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

After Smartmatic sold its US subsidiary, Sequoia Voting Systems, it continued offering maintenance and support services for the City of Chicago and Cook County in Illinois.

In 2016, Smartmatic deployed some of its most innovative technology: the ePen in California; and its online voting solution in Utah.

In March 2016, the Utah Republican party organized its Presidential Caucus using a Smartmatic-Cybernetica online voting system. The caucus was the first use of blockchain technology in voting. Nearly 90 percent of voters registered to vote online participated in the caucus process, marking an extremely high turnout rate. Voters from more than 45 countries, including places as far away as French Polynesia, South Africa and Japan, voiced their opinion.

On June 7, 2016, authorities from Los Angeles County used Smartmatic’s ePen during the California Primary Presidential Elections. The ePen streamlined election reporting by helping process provisional envelopes and vote-by-mail ballots.

In 2018, Smartmatic signed a contract with the County of Los Angeles to become the prime contractor for the Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP). Smartmatic is responsible for systems integration, engineering and manufacturing of the new voting system to be used during the 2020 elections.
