Last week, Utah County, UT successfully completed its third mobile voting pilot using Voatz to enable remote voting for overseas citizens, deployed military and citizens with disabilities.
This marks Voatz’s tenth governmental pilot in the nation. The pilot saw great success, with 78 total submitted ballots, marking a 91% return rate on all ballots sent to these voters. This pilot was also available to voters with disabilities, including a voter who had just received a kidney transplant and was unable to travel to the polls.
“We are so impressed with how knowledgeable, supportive and professional the Voatz team is. I love how smooth and easy the application and process is, and we have had so many positive responses from our voters,” said one of the election officials in Utah County.
Voters, too, had feedback to share.
“Thank you for making this so easy! I hope it ‘sticks’ for the fall election!” shared one voter.
Another voter shared, “Fantastic! Thanks again for your hard work and quick responses!”
All ballots will undergo a post-election audit hosted by the National Cybersecurity Center next week, open to the public for participation.
