Clear Ballot will be piloting its voting system technology, ClearVote, in Gilpin County, Colorado this election. This will be the second time Gilpin County has piloted Clear Ballot software – Clear Ballot worked with Gilpin in December 2014. Since the first pilot the Clear Vote system has been certified for use in the evaluation process for Colorado’s Uniform Voting System, an ongoing project that the Secretary of State’s office began in 2014. Clear Ballot’s ClearVote certification was the result of an extensive and successful testing campaign at Pro V&V, a federally accredited voting systems test laboratory.
The ClearVote system allows the Clerk and Recorder’s Office to quickly and efficiently tabulate and report election results. The Clerk’s office, election observers and the public can review each individual ballot and the overall results of the election to ensure full transparency and accountability in the tabulation process.
Larry Moore, CEO for Clear Ballot said, “It’s great to see how our vision of scalable hardware and modern software fits with the budgetary and performance needs of small counties like Gilpin. It has been a pleasure to team up with Clerk Stewart to enable her and her staff to demonstrate real transparency in the results.”
