Voting software developed in Estonia was recently used in the Republican caucus in the US state of Utah. The voting solution was created by the Smartmatic-Cybernetica Internet Voting Centere of Excellence based in Tartu.
“The software used in the Utah primary elections was developed in Estonia, but for the Estonian elections, we use a different system due to the differences in the local infrastructure,“ CEO Sven Heiberg explains.
Estonia uses the ID card infrastructure for identification and authentication purposes. The solution designed for the Utah Primary required participants to preregister for the online voting option, then they received PIN-codes to login and cast their vote.
The Chairman of the Utah Republican party was pleased with the outcome using the voting software. This allowed those citizens abroad to cast their ballots from 45 different countries.
