Ensuring a reliable and transparent election process thanks to biometrics
Successful elections contribute to a country’s better future. Democratically elected, legitimate leaders often ease access to greater levels of funding from the international community. Transparency and clarity about the elected government secure direct foreign investment, which in return drives growth and development for a nation.
Today, many governments and election management bodies are searching for efficient and secure solutions to hold elections that achieve political consensus. In countries where an important part of the population still lacks official identity documentation, the use of biometric technology has a key role to play to create transparency in the political process. The biometric registration of voters can seamlessly ensure the uniqueness of voters on electoral lists and prevent double voting thanks to reliable authentication at polling stations.
IDEMIA’s Election Suite comprises a full array of products to deploy and manage transparent elections, including for the registration and authentication of voters and the issuance of secure voter cards, as well as to generate the approved list of candidates. Each product of this complete electoral management solution works effectively as a stand-alone component and can easily be integrated with existing administrative systems as, for instance, an existing biometric voter database.
For accurate and efficient registration of voters, the Election Suite relies on IDEMIA’s biometric algorithms, which are top ranking in international benchmarks, and on devices working even under the harshest conditions.
Relying on its long experience in large-scale projects with the tightest deadlines, IDEMIA provides support in the field throughout the whole duration of an electoral project to ensure on-time and on-budget elections.
The Election Suite components are designed for long-term use beyond the immediate need for one election cycle. They can easily be updated and upgraded for future electoral events.
