Mirroring the traditional manual count process, our eCount service offers total accuracy during the counting stage at the touch of a button, delivering voting results through a proven, streamlined operation.
We understand that those countries adopting the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system are charged with the task of undertaking a considerably more complex process – the electorate vote for every candidate is in order of preference, rather than the selection of one candidate like the first past the post system.
Due to this complexity, manual counting in an STV election can take significantly longer and may delay the declaration of the result. Our eCount solution scans ballots in hours – a fraction of the time compared to manual counting – and provides calculations in minutes, reducing the count time significantly. Offering full transparency at each stage, our expertise in this area offers our customers the reassurance needed to announce results with total confidence and improves the accuracy and auditability of results.
