Ms. Steele Contorer’s company, Everyone Counts, develops secure, auditable online voting that enables governments and private sector clients to enfranchise voters by allowing them to vote from familiar, convenient and secure devices such as tablets and laptops. The election solutions, including voter registration, voting, election night reporting, and electronic pollbook, are delivered via a Software as a Service platform. That means that the increased security, auditability and accessibility, delivered on inexpensive, commercial off-the-shelf devices, is Perpetually State of the Art. Software can be updated as legislation or election laws change without administrators having to start over and purchase outdated machines that are only used for a few years, or resorting to error-prone paper processes. Cities looking to decrease costs while increasing community involvement are finding success with this model, providing voters with easy, convenient solutions, decreasing long lines and increasing voter participation.
