Sees record growth in election modernisation and online voting projects in 2013.

Headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, Scytl is supporting online voting initiatives in India, Australia and New Zealand and has announced record growth in election modernisation and online voting projects in 2013.

Bangladesh is using Scytl´s technology to enable fully accessible, transparent, secure and auditable processes.

There was an increase in election modernisation, citizen database development and results transmission initiatives across the Asia Pacific region in 2013.

Many nations in the region intend to continue developing these election projects this year. Few countries will adapt legislation to allow overseas voting and online campaigning.

"We are extremely proud of the success in key electoral technology deployments that we have obtained during 2013," said Pere Valles, CEO at Scytl. "This allows us to continue supporting election processes around the globe and provide the most transparent, secure, accessible and auditable technology for organisations both in the public and private sectors."

Improving participatory democracy

Scytl is assisting nations, governments and private organisations to improve participatory democracy, citizen empowerment and public transparency.

The global specialist in secure online voting and election modernisation has recorded more than 70% growth in the deployment of innovative election modernisation and online voting technology.

The company has achieved this growth from its innovative end-to-end election modernisation technology deployment in election processes across the world.

Scytl is ready to address the key 2014 election industry trends and notes that sophisticated democracies across the globe are working towards implementing remote online voting to increase voter turnout.

Developing democracies want to establish a more elaborate and integrated election management systems. These nations are also becoming interested in poll-site online voting and electronic results transmission systems to improve efficiency and transparency.

Scytl was founded in 2001 as a spin-off from a leading research group at the Autonomous University of Barcelona that had pioneered the research of security solutions for the electronic voting industry since 1994.
