|Election Technology Provider VOTEC Corporation Now Serves 50% of Texas’ Registered Voters|
October 10, 2010
Austin, Texas - With the purchase of the VoteSafe™ electronic pollbook and polling place monitoring system from The VOTEC Corporation (VOTEC), Victoria County, Texas continues to be on the forefront of election technology and joins 36 other Texas counties representing over half of the state’s over 11 million registered voters in their use of robust, high-tech and easy to use election solutions from VOTEC.
VOTEC’s VoteSafe electronic pollbooks and VEMACS™ (VOTEC Election Management and Compliance System) election management and voter registration software solutions are used throughout Texas in jurisdictions that include Harris County (Houston), Williamson County (Georgetown), Nueces County (Corpus Christi), El Paso County (El Paso) and Tarrant County (Fort Worth), in addition to the company’s newest Texas customer – Victoria County (Victoria).
The Victoria County Commissioners announced last week that VoteSafe electronic pollbooks will be used this November to streamline the voter check-in process for all of Victoria County’s 35 precincts and to provide Victoria County election officials a seamless integration with the Texas Election Administration Management (TEAM) statewide voter registration system administered by the Texas Secretary of State’s office.
“We are very excited about the use of the VoteSafe electronic pollbooks,” said George Matthews, Victoria County’s Elections Administrator. “In researching emerging election technologies, my underlying concern is always the integrity of the company. Voting is too important to involve any but the best. VOTEC can be counted in this group because of the people who conduct the company’s business. They are not only interested in providing a good product like VoteSafe, but also in listening to their customers to make all of their products secure and reliable, as well as easy to use.”
VoteSafe integrates with magnetic card readers and bar code scanners allowing fast and accurate lookup and voter verification. The system is fully encrypted behind the scenes for added security and is able to process voters utilizing any voting system.
“All of us at VOTEC are pleased to have Victoria County as our new customer,” said John Medcalf, chief executive officer of VOTEC. “They are a very sharp group of individuals who enjoy new technology and its many benefits. We are looking forward to working with their team and training them on all of the time-saving and helpful features of VoteSafe in preparation for the November 2nd election.”
