Introduction to eLect®
The Next Generation Election Administration and Voting System
Mastery of many challenging, integrated processes is critical to the success of an election. Technology alone is not the answer. Everyone Counts’ true state-of-the-art technologies—specifically designed with a deep understanding of the election process and combined with broad election administration experience—are critical to bringing election administration and electronic voting to the highest standard.
Scalable. Sustainable. Efficient. Accurate. Secure. Accessible. Auditable. Cost-Effective.
Everyone Counts’ online voting solutions seamlessly integrate your processes to deliver these benefits by merging election administration expertise with software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Our online voting solutions can be introduced as individual modules to improve a specific administration or voting process, or can be simultaneously integrated with the complete eLect set of solutions. You can replace your entire end-to-end system at once, or adopt modules in phases over a period of time.
We look forward to the opportunity to discuss how eLect online voting solutions can help you begin to migrate to Next Generation Election Administration and Voting Systems.
Perpetually State of the Art™
eLect’s inherent flexibility ensures that it is, and will remain, perpetually state of the art. Delivered as a service instead of software installed on a specific device, all upgrades and enhancements are immediately available. In addition, innovations related to a specific device, such as a tablet or a smartphone, inherit upgrades for that device and seamlessly become a part of the total solution. SaaS technologies offer enhanced features, freedom, and flexibility, while saving you time and money.
Each of eLect’s solution modules are specifically designed to be independent of any specific hardware and can be used on any Internet-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone. The ability to use commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware empowers election administrators with control, flexibility, and freedom from dependency on a single vendor.
More than simple ballot delivery, an election consists of many components, one of the most critical of which is security. An election solution—the infrastructure (hardware, networks, and software) and the actual data (voter information, ballots cast, and results)—must be protected from both intentional and unintentional interference.
We understand that security is about layer upon layer of protection, cumulatively increasing the safety of each election project. We address each of these layers by using military-grade security and accredited, industry-standard data hosting and storage facilities. Our data centers have unrivaled physical protection and entry safeguards, and any access to data requires multiple levels of security credentials.
Since 1996, Everyone Counts’ eLect SaaS solutions have been successfully deployed in thousands of elections in over 165 countries, with zero elections contested or breached. We have been counted on as the experts and the trusted vendor to deliver the most secure and successful online elections in both private and government settings. Our electronic voting solutions have historically led to a dramatic increase in the number of election participants around the globe. Not only do customers trust our solutions, they trust our team. Our election experts and election administration professionals have a rich and diverse knowledge of election processes and are continually called on as trusted, reputable advisors and as the go-to source for embracing modern technology for elections.
We understand that software solutions are rarely one-size-fits-all when they are done right. With Everyone Counts on your team, you will have a partner that takes a modular, consultative approach to ensure full strategic alignment. Each electronic voting solution is configured to meet your needs, including your timeline for folding in additional features, such as Voter Management, Electronic Poll Books, Ballot Building, Scanning, Tabulation, and Reporting tools. Our modular and consultative approach, combined with our unique ability to deliver custom, fully integrated solutions, is a primary key to our customers' success.
The eLect suite of products handles high-volume record updates and is an easy-to-use, sustainable, and efficient platform that seamlessly connects all of your election administration processes.
Open Code Advantage™
The technical workings of any software used for electronic voting should be open for independent auditing and review by election officials. Everyone Counts is the only online election administration vendor with Open Code Advantage, which allows the client to review the source code of an election. Our patent-pending Open Code Advantage also allows for independent auditors to review our source code, providing complete transparency into eLect voting solutions.
Everyone Counts is committed to making our electronic voting solutions intuitive to use and universally accessible for all voters, particularly previously disenfranchised populations. Our online voting solutions are fully compliant with federal accessibility laws in the United States, as well as compliant with international standards for election administration processes worldwide. We are industry leaders in developing election solutions that are compatible with common and leading-edge accessibility devices. Let our experts show you how our vast experience in the area of accessible technologies and accessible device offerings can empower your voters with the latest, most convenient, and highest quality accessibility solutions.
