Blockchain voting innovator Votem Corp acquires venerable market-leading election software and online voting company, Everyone Counts

Leader in blockchain voting combines with leader in online voting & voter registration to produce powerhouse elections management solutions provider.

Votem is pleased to announce the acquisition of Everyone Counts with offices across the United States, Australia/New Zealand, and Canada.

“Both Votem and Everyone Counts were founded with a similar mission to make voting more accessible, secure and transparent with the shared objective to instill confidence in voters that their ballot was cast the way they intended,” said Pete Martin, Founder/CEO of Votem. “With two decades of leadership in online voting combined with the most advanced voter registration/election management system available today, teaming with Everyone Counts is an obvious fit for Votem as we grow our company and expand our offerings.”

Combining Votem’s mobile and blockchain voting platform with Everyone Counts’ vast experience and expertise in delivering online elections helps voting administrators and election management bodies better meet the unique and disparate needs of their eligible voters.

“We are excited to combine our respective online voting solutions to offer unparalleled security and service to government bodies, unions, boards, award shows, and any other entity that requires accessible, transparent, and trusted elections,” said James Simmons, Everyone Counts’ CEO. “Together, our products provide a comprehensive solution for voter engagement, voter registration, election management, and voting for our current and future clients. We couldn’t have found a better organization with which to continue and expand our vision for the future of elections.”

With the completion of the acquisition, Votem now offers five voting products: mobile blockchain voting, online voting, online voter registration, voter registration and election management system, and remote accessible voting for military and overseas voters.

Combined, the company serves a set of blue-chip private and public sector clients including the Television Academy, the United Nations, the States of New Jersey, Colorado, Alabama, and Montana, The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Ohio State Bar Association, and many others around the world.

The first project for the combined team is to complete the implementation of the Interactive Sample Ballot (ISB) as part of the “Voting Solutions for All People” (VSAP) project in Los Angeles County in partnership with Smartmatic.

Everyone Counts was advised in this transaction by Objective Capital Partners, LLC.
