Smartmatic’s Chairman featured in Citylab

United States - October 8, 2015 - “The Future of U.S. Voting May Be U.K. Technology” is the title on an article published by Brentin Mock in Citylab on October 7, 2015.

Using the recent reports published by the Brennan Center on the aging US election technology as a backdrop, Mock details Smartmatic’s technology and services, and how its solutions have improved elections in five continents.

“Enter Smartmatic, a U.K.-based company that has been instrumental in designing and selling a huge portion of the current innovative stock of voting machines around the world. The company boasts that it has provided modernized voting technology—namely touchscreen machines and optical scanners—and support services in 307 counties and 16 states in the U.S. alone, as just a fraction of their global catalogue. The machine that President Obama voted on in 2012? That was Smartmatic’s.” reads the article.

Mark Malloch-Brown, Smartmatic’s Chairman, was in the US this week to participate in a panel discussion with other experts in the field of elections. The event, organized by The Atlantic Council, was be held on October 9 in Washington DC.
