Universal Ballot Marking

Transforming Elections with Innovation and Accessibility

Smartmatic’s, new premiere Ballot Marking Device introduced as part of the new line of election technology, is the first to enter EAC VVSG 2.0 certification.

A Solution Designed for Auditability, Election Integrity and Outstanding Voter Experiences

 

Smartmatic is the first company to submit innovative voting technology for US federal certification under the EAC’s new guidelines. Our solution is composed of a precinct scanner, a central scanner, a ballot marking device and our election management system software.

The innovations in our new system are based on four main pillars and were developed with your success in mind to meet the challenges of elections for today and tomorrow.

Smartmatic´s Four Pillars of Innovation

    • Built for 21st Century elections. The user-centric system is all new from the ground up and meets or exceeds all standards set by the EAC. It is adaptable to the preferences of individual jurisdictions, large or small.
    • User-centered design. Users are central to our product design, which ensures intuitive operation for election workers, so they require minimal training, and for voters casting a ballot is simple.
    • Cybersecurity at the core. We are setting a new standard for cybersecurity with technology designed for secure operation and integration with your legacy systems.
    • Private, independent voting. Accessible for all voters, regardless of ability, so everyone can participate equally in elections.
