“Since 2003, Rushmoor Borough Council have been at the forefront of modernising UK elections and we continue to recognise the role that technology can play in supporting the principles of democracy – not only to help our electorate, but to support our election team,” said Rushmoor Borough Council’s, Head of Democratic Services, Andrew Colver.
“Smartmatic’s ePen solution was easy to use and reduced the time it normally takes to collect, validate and publish election results. It can be used just like a regular ink pen, but radically improves the speed, accuracy and integrity of the election process”, commented Colver.
“We are delighted that we had the opportunity to deploy our ePen in such an important election in the UK and were able to demonstrate the benefits of this technology,” said Antonio Mugica, CEO of Smartmatic. “We are committed to growing the UK market and offering technology solutions that streamline the complex process of collecting and transmitting election results, whilst also ensuring their accuracy and privacy.”
