There are many benefits to a state selecting a uniform voting system including standardized training, improved reporting across jurisdictions and better buying power. Colorado recognized these benefits and more earlier this year, with the Secretary of State forming the Pilot Election Review Committee in March to explore implementing a statewide voting vendor. Tuesday SOS Williams announced certification for the four voting systems the committee will be evaluating.
“Coloradans expect integrity and accuracy in their elections,” Williams remarked. “A uniform voting system will make it easier for both voters and counties and standardize training across the state for election administrators and judges. Allowing multiple systems to compete allows us to really see which system will be best for Colorado.”
ES&S is honored to be among this group and believes in the many benefits of statewide voting systems, providing them for both Maryland and Arkansas. Read below for the full release from SOS Williams outlining both the Pilot Election Review Committee and the specifics of the pilot program.
