Shelby County will upgrade to eLect VRS to manage their voter data in 2018
Shelby County Election Commission (SCEC) has contracted Everyone Counts to provide Voter Registration to manage the county’s voter data.
“System security is of the utmost importance in our selection of a new system,” said Linda Phillips, Administrator of Elections for Shelby County. “At the same time, we also need it to be user-friendly. We envisioned a unified system that can receive data from a variety of databases and be updated with minimal staff interaction. Our current software cannot meet these requirements or integrate future technology advancements.”
SCEC selected the eLect Voter Registration because the system meets the county’s modernization requirements for security, integration with multiple databases, and scalability required for today’s election ecosystem.
“Shelby County wants to increase efficiency and accuracy, and that is exactly what eLect Voter Registration is designed to do for administrators,” said Brandon Johnson, Sales Director at Everyone Counts. “Advanced permissions and controls, reduction in manual tasks, GIS integration, and one-touch EAVS reporting are just a few of the ways eLect makes day-to-day tasks easier and more accurate.”
Everyone Counts will be teaming with local Memphis-based business Small Planet Works who will provide business analysis and training solutions.
“This project is one of the most critical and highly anticipated technology upgrades in Shelby County’s elections system,” said Janice Banks, President & CEO of Small Planet Works. “We are excited to team with Everyone Counts to support the county in becoming the premiere leader in voter registration.”
