Scytl’s Secure Online Voting Benefits Municipalities Across Ontario in 2022

Oct 25, 2022

October 25, 2022 10:46 AM Eastern Daylight Time BARCELONA, Spain--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Approximately 1 million voters had the opportunity to cast their votes privately and securely during the recent 2022 Ontario Municipal Elections using Scytl’s end-to-end verifiable online voting technology. Scytl is proud to have partnered with many of the largest municipalities who adopted secure online voting this year, including the City of Markham, Vaughan, Greater Sudbury and Sarnia, among many others. As a result, Scytl has consolidated its position as the leading online voting provider in Canada. Of note in these elections, online voting participation surpassed that of paper voting in the municipality of Vaughan, who had adopted the technology for the first time this year. Over half of all votes across the municipalities were cast online, and in Markham, paper voting only accounted for 5% of total participation, highlighting a clear preference for the ease and accessibility of online voting. Scytl’s online voting solution, Invote, offered municipalities a completely end-to-end verifiable election, meaning every step and process could be reviewed to confirm that complete security and integrity were maintained at all times. End-to-end encryption was employed to ensure that ballots remain secure from the moment they were cast until they were tabulated for the final results, and digital signatures ensured that ballots were cast only by eligible voters. Scytl has a long history of supporting Ontario municipalities and has helped them modernize their election experiences since 2014. In 2018, Scytl’s online voting solutions were used by over 100 municipalities, helping deliver accurate results in less than 10 minutes, on average. When surveyed about the online voting process in 2018, 96% of respondents remarked being satisfied or very satisfied with the experience, and a majority of voters noted that voting online was convenient.1 About Scytl Election Technologies Scytl, part of the Paragon Group's Innovative Solutions Ecosystem, is leading digital transformation and innovation in elections around the world.
