Automatic voter check-in system for Virginia

Datacard Group : 06 February, 2009  (Application Story)
Datacard to supply Advocate precinct management system for voter check-in for Virginia

Datacard Group has won a four-year state-wide contract to help the Commonwealth of Virginia improve the efficiency, security and auditability of voter check-in using the Datacard Advocate precinct management system. The first phase, implemented for the historic 2008 election, helped more than 100 precincts expedite check-in, automate management of voter registration data and eliminate the expense of printing paper poll books. The contract award allows more than 2,000 eligible precincts in the Commonwealth to implement this precinct solution during the upcoming election cycles.

"We experienced the future of secure, efficient precinct management with this solution this past November," said Nancy Rodrigues, secretary, Virginia State Board of Elections. "The training, technical support, hardware and software Datacard Group provided addressed our needs. We experienced no problems on election day with this solution."

In the eight weeks before the election, Datacard Group worked with its local dealer, BEC Plastic Card Solutions, to inventory, test, load and deploy hundreds of refurbished laptops with Advocate system software. Datacard Group and BEC also provided extensive services including project management, deployment, training and on-site support.

"The Advocate system is ideal for Virginia's needs," said Fred Ketcho, vice president of Americas sales and service for Datacard Group. "The state wanted secure, auditable tools to improve poll site management, but needed a hardware-independent solution that met tight budget parameters. We delivered on all counts. This program demonstrates our expertise in identification security and highlights our ability to meet the unique needs of the government market."

The Advocate system will launch officially at the National Association of Secretaries of State Winter Conference, starting February 6 in Washington, DC.
