Smartmatic, the world’s leading voting technology and services provider, will make available a fully-verifiable electronic voting solution to Bulgaria for the European Union Parliament elections to be held on May 25.
The National Electoral Commission of Bulgaria has contracted with Smartmatic to implement the system. Citizens of Sofia and three other Bulgarian cities will have the option to use it in the upcoming European Elections. This event will advance Bulgaria's position within the European Union as a leader in electoral modernisation.
To guarantee success, the London-headquartered company has custom built a voting technology platform. It includes touchscreen voting machines coordinated by powerful software applications, as well as a host of services, including Smartmatic’s field-tested project management methodology.
Bulgaria will benefit from having access to a fully-automated, unified solution which includes vote casting, counting, transmission, tallying, reports generation, and results publishing. Together with political parties and electoral authorities, Smartmatic will conduct a comprehensive series of audits at every stage of the process to validate the correctness of results.
Commenting on the project, Antonio Mugica, CEO for Smartmatic stated, “We expect to witness a rapid increase of electronic voting in Europe as part of e-government initiatives currently under way. Bulgaria is working to take the lead.”
“We feel honored the Electoral Commission of Bulgaria chose us to play a role in this new and innovative stage of modern elections in Bulgaria. We look forward to a long and successful relationship – and one that results in Bulgaria becoming a digital democracy pioneer, whose example others within the European Union can follow,” said Alexander Rakov, Smartmatic Sales Vice president.
Smartmatic is partnering with Bulgarian company, Ciela, forming the Consortium for Electronic Voting DZZD, to successfully carry out all the critical processes required for the project.
We focus on creating technology and offering services that have a profound social impact. We’ve processed over 2.3 billion auditable, secret and secure votes in more than 3,500 tamper-proof, fraud-free elections. We now lead the electronic voting industry in terms of revenue, profit, product offerings, quality of support services, geographical presence, and technological advancement.
