Everyone Counts & Votem: About Us
A shared mission to deliver secure, accessible, transparent elections
Everyone Counts is now Votem!
Votem Corporation was founded in 2014 to foster and restore trust, access, and transparency in elections with a core focus on developing the most secure and verifiable voting platform globally. Considering the range of security vulnerabilities publicly exposed during national elections and the reveal of nation state election meddling, Votem knew that in order to compete in this market, it had to advance the state of security and end-to-end verifiability beyond those platforms already available.
Sharing Votem’s vision to revolutionize and modernize the democratic process, Everyone Counts, Inc. was launched in 1996 and has established itself as a global civic technology leader in election software managing thousands of elections with a team of internationally recognized election administration and technology experts.
On October 1st, 2018, Votem and Everyone Counts came together as one company, combining the most advanced and secure blockchain-based online voting (which has tallied over 10 million votes to date) with a team of elections experts that have run thousands of successful online elections over the past 20 years.
Not only do both companies bring online voting products and election expertise to the table, but the acquisition creates another symbiotic relationship; Votem’s online voter registration product and Everyone Counts’ voter registration/election management system work together to provide clients with a seamless option for managing voter data.
Both Votem and Everyone Counts are active charter members in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sector Coordinating Council (SCC), which serves as the driving force behind preventing and responding to threats to the U.S. election infrastructure. We look forward to sharing the best security practices developed from our work in the SCC with our customers in order to better serve their voters more securely, accurately, and transparently.
