Convenient, Secure, and Reliable Ballot Access Options
Our eLect® Electronic Voting and eLect® Telephone Voting options give remote citizens more convenient, secure, and reliable ways to participate in an election from any location with telephone or Internet access. These voting methods increase, in particular, accessibility to military and overseas voters and voters with disabilities, and are fully compliant with—and exceed the expectations of—United States federal laws such as the Help America Vote Act (HAVA) and the Uniformed and Overseas Citizens and Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA), as well as similar laws established in countries outside of the U.S.
