One of the largest voting jurisdictions in Minnesota is upgrading its election systems to the newest technology available. Ramsey County officials confirmed this week that Hart InterCivic’s new Verity® Voting system will replace their outdated voting software and hardware.
With nearly 300,000 voters during each election cycle, Ramsey County is the first Minnesota County to adopt the comprehensive Hart solution for managing the process of casting, counting, compiling and reporting votes in all state, federal and local elections. Home of the state capital, St. Paul, the County is a leader in the state’s election community and will be the nation’s largest user of Hart’s Verity system to date. “It’s nice to have a system that won’t soon be obsolete,” said Ramsey County Election Manager Joe Mansky.
“We chose a solution that can keep up-to-date with changing technology,” he said. “We also like that the voter gets feedback right away as the ballot is processed. And finally, we like the price. Hart came in the lowest considering acquisition and operating costs.”
“Hart worked closely with jurisdictions throughout Minnesota to develop Verity,” said Phillip Braithwaite, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic. “We extend a warm welcome to Ramsey County, as the first Hart partner in the state.”
“All eyes are on Ramsey County’s roll-out with Hart, and we think other counties will like what they see,” he added.
Certified by the Minnesota Secretary of State this year, Verity is the most comprehensive solution on the market. Austin-based Hart InterCivic has the highest customer satisfaction ratings* in the elections industry.
