Elyctis voter ID tech plays central role in Kyrgyzstan election

Categories Biometrics News  |  Elections
 

In the October 2017 Kyrgyzstan presidential election, more 5,000 Elyctis ID BOX One readers were used in all voting stations across the country to verify the identity of voters.

The Elyctis ID BOX One was used to read data from the MRZ (Machine Readable Zone) from the ID document presented by the voter and to check this data against the voter register biometric database, making the identity verification and voting process faster. Voters can use any document that contains an MRZ.

The ID BOX One is also able to read the chips included in ePassports and new eID cards issued by the Kyrgyz authorities.

The ID BOX One is equipped with an MRZ scanner, a contactless reader, two readers for contact ID1 format cards and a SAM (Security Access Module) allowing the device to perform offline with strong authentication.

“We are very proud to see our ID BOX One readers playing a central role in helping the Kyrgyz administration drastically improve citizen identification during the election process,” commented Alexandre Joly, CEO of Elyctis.

“Voter identification is instrumental in ensuring the fairness of the voting conditions,” added Mr. Dastan Dogoev, Chairman, Kyrgyz Republic Registration Service.
