Why Choose Us

Secured

Smart Ballots offers secure and quantum-safe CCPA/GDPR capable data portability to protect personally identifiable information (PII). Our decentralized identity system selectively exposes only minimally necessary information such as age, citizenship, and residency location or voting district to prove eligibility without excessive exposure of PII.

Proof of the Vote

Proof of the vote is secured with tens of millions of dollars of security applied daily and approximately four billion dollars within a year. Election officials can analyze proof reports during and/or after the close of voting to show indisputable evidence that all votes are legitimate. Smart Ballots allow for official audits and statistical analysis, independent audits, and the voters themselves can validate and prove that their vote is counted appropriately.

Flexibility

Smart Ballots offers the flexibility and security not seen in any current voting system today. We have applied our efficient, scalable, and cost-effective solutions to the election process to restore voting integrity, not in the future but now.
