GenKey’s biometric ID solutions deployed for voter registration in Tanzania

 

GenKey announced that the Tanzanian government has deployed its biometric identification solutions for its upcoming national elections, including its Voter ID Management Solution (SPiRE), Automated Biometric Identification Solution (ABIS) for deduplication, and Adjudication solutions.

The government conducted a voter registration exercise in advance of the elections, in which it biometrically enrolled and registered 24 million eligible Tanzanian voters in the Permanent Voter Register (PVR).

GenKey’s large-scale biometric-based deduplication solution was chosen to ensure that each voter is enrolled only once.

The GenKey SPiRE voter ID management solution provides the capabilities to set up and maintain the electoral landscape, upload and manage the voter registration data, and compile an accurate and credible voter register.

“With large-scale biometric deployments throughout the world, we are delighted to also assist the National Election Committee of Tanzania in this important project to ensure credible and transparent elections,” said GenKey CEO Michiel van der Veen.

Lithotech Exports of South Africa, the firm that was awarded the contract by the National Electoral Commission (NEC) of Tanzania, subcontracted the project to GenKey.

Previously reported, the Tanzanian government officially endorsed the National Electoral Commission’s plans to use a biometric electoral system for the country’s 2015 elections.

  1. I have also published a paper to the international journal regarding this transformation of technology to Tanzania. Hopefully it will be useful and more friendly hence efficient with regards to the coming election. I’m intending also to publish another paper once election is done.
