NSW chooses online voting provider for 2015 election


The New South Wales Electoral Committee has selected Scytl Online Voting technology to support their iVote Core Voting System, enabling some voters to cast their vote online in 2015.

Scytl, which describes itself as the the worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernisation, today announced a contract has been executed between Scytl and the New South Wales Electoral Commission (NSWEC) for an Online Voting system, meaning some NSW voters will get their first taste of online voting when they head to the polls next year.

Scytl Online Voting technology will be the cornerstone of the the iVote Core Voting System, a system that the company said will "enable secure, accessible, transparent and auditable elections to eligible citizens across New South Wales."

Scytl, founded in 2001 as a spin-off from a University research group, will help realize NSWEC´s goal of using their iVote system to deliver a strong and well regarded remote voting channel to eligible voters in NSW, and possibly to other jurisdictions in Australia and New Zealand, making the online voting system a benchmark not only in Australia, but across the region.

Currently NSW is one of the few jurisdictions globally with ongoing requirements for remote internet and phone voting for parliamentary elections. At this time, only the visually impaired, disabled electors or electors who are outside NSW on Election Day or live a long way from a polling place can vote via the iVote system.

“Public awareness and confidence in the iVote System is of paramount importance to ensure a smooth electoral process and reliable outcome,” says Ian Brightwell, CIO of NSWEC.

“Scytl’s experience and leading edge security and technology will provide peace of mind to the NSWEC and our stakeholders.”

“We are thrilled with NSWEC´s selection of Scytl Online Voting technology as the solution that will enable them to accomplish their objectives and be a flagship for secure and efficient online voting in the region by bringing the highest levels of transparency, integrity and security to their iVote system,” said Pere Valles, CEO at Scytl.

Recent polls have suggested the Coalition would win an election 58-42 on a two-party preferred basis if an election was held today.
