BOSTON, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Over 1.1 million of the ballots cast in Oregon were successfully tallied using Clear Ballot's ClearVote voting system during the Presidential General Election, improving the efficiency and transparency in their election processes. This accounts for 57% of the entire state's electorate.
The State of Oregon certified the ClearVote system in May 2015. Clear Ballot immediately began working with Oregon Counties to determine the best solutions for updating their voting technology. Clear Ballot utilizes optical scanning with cutting-edge technology like ClearVote's unique digital inventory of the election that minimizes ballot handling, reducing potential errors and increasing efficiency. ClearVote increases transparency by offering a complete digital database of election results that includes visual verification of every single vote. "Clear Ballot has enabled us to make a lot of changes to our ballot handling which has allowed us to become a lot more efficient in our processes," said Multnomah County Election Director Tim Scott, who has been using the ClearVote voting system since 2015. "I'm much more confident in the outcome of the election, I no longer have to trust a black box system, I can now see that the results are accurate." Clear Ballot is pleased to see the success of election officials throughout the country, who used its technology during last week's general election.
