Clear Ballot, in partnership with the Adams County Clerk and Recorder’s Office, will be piloting its ClearVote voting system Monday, November 2, at 10:00 am. The 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. “We are excited to work with Clear Ballot as part of the state’s efforts to bring innovative technology to Colorado,” said Adams County Clerk Stan Martin. “New technology like ClearVote demonstrates how transparency will transform the election results process in Colorado and, most importantly, increase voter confidence.”
Clear Ballot employs advanced software in its voting solution along with commercial-off-the-shelf-scanners that capture an electronic image of each ballot cast. With the electronic images, the ClearVote system allows the Clerk and Recorder’s Office to quickly and efficiently tabulate and report election results. Each individual ballot and the overall results of the election can be reviewed by the Clerk’s office, election observers and the public to ensure full transparency and accountability in the tabulation process.
Larry Moore, CEO for Clear Ballot said, “Colorado is a recognized leader in solving the issue of the nation’s aging voting systems. We are looking forward to working with Adams County to provide accurate and transparent results.”
Adams County and Clear Ballot will be processing ballots and demonstrating all Clear Ballot election procedures from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 2, at the Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 4430 South Adams County Parkway, Brighton 80601. The meeting is open to the public and the media.
