Hart InterCivic announced today that the Verity Voting system has performed exceptionally in the Prince William County, VA June primary election. The primary election was held on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 with polls open from 6 A.M. to 7 P.M. in 55 precincts and one Central Absentee Processing site across the county. Prince William County purchased the Verity Voting system in May of 2014, successfully piloting the system in the Dumfries Town Special Election in March of this year. The county completed State acceptance testing for Verity in just over two full days, using teams to help complete the detailed instructions for testing procedures. “Implementing Verity in Prince William County has truly been a milestone for Hart,” said Jessica McKay, Hart InterCivic Professional Services Project Manager, who was on site as part of the team helping to support the primary election. “The PWC staff was amazing and easy to work with; I could not imagine working with a better group of individuals to deliver an effective election.”
The Prince William County Elections Office trained approximately 280 officers for the June Primary. Officers trained with Hart InterCivic staff using curriculum designed to effectively execute any election within the county. The county deployed the pre-prepped voting equipment to all precincts on Monday, June 8, 2015.
“We are very pleased with the initial success of the Verity Voting system in Prince William County,” said Pete Lichtenheld, VP of Operations, Hart InterCivic. “PWC is a positive indicator of the many future successes of Verity to come; Hart remains committed to leveraging our superior election technology together with our exceptional customer support to continue to provide unparalleled value to election administrators and voters across the country.”
“Today is an important milestone for the rollout of our new voting system,” said Phillip Braithwaite, President and CEO, Hart InterCivic. “Our vision with Verity was to maximize game-changing election technology, using an approach that emphasizes modern, easy to use voting technology. We are delighted to unveil Verity in Prince William County, Virginia and to assist in delivering their successful June primary election.”
