A new article published by GovTech tells the story of how Loudoun County, Virginia leverages digital election management solutions from Civix to support fast, efficient, secure processes from the start of early voting until the returns come in.
The article says the county government and its voters have enjoyed all those benefits since 2008, when the county switched from paper-based pollbooks for voter check-in to electronic pollbooks powered by technology from DemTech and offered by Civix. Additionally, over the past several years Loudoun has added Civix technology for overseas and military voters and election night reporting.
The three solutions – e-Pollbook, e-Ballot and Precinct Reporting – streamline the voting process every step of the way, from absentee and early voting, through voting on Election Day, until election results are reported and verified.
In the years since Loudoun County started using this technology, elections have been running more smoothly than before, with faster, more intuitive processes and fewer opportunities for error, says Richard Keech, the county’s deputy director of the Office of Elections. “The solutions have helped us ensure accuracy on check-in when voters arrive, and they’ve helped us ensure the results we report on Election Night are accurate.”
