Voatz presents its 2020 biometric mobile voting balance sheet

Biometric blockchain mobile voting technology platform Voatz has affirmed that it made strides in the course of the year 2020 despite numerous challenges which stood on the way of its works worldwide.

In a résumé of its activities for the year posted on its official LinkedIn account, the movement said it was actively involved in 23 elections, serving 1.8 million voters in the process.

The 23 elections, as per Voatz’ statistics, had to do with government polls in three countries including two U.S states; political party elections in four U.S states including the two major political parties; as well as non-government, non-political and private elections.

Of the 1.8 million people served, 201,937 voted using the Voatz app while 1.6 million did so using their application programing interfaces. It said it also blocked 13.9 million threats such as network infrastructure attacks, mobile device network and malware threats.

Voatz’ biometric voting app was also certified to U.S. requirements by the Voting System Test Laboratory (VSTL) last year.

Voatz, through the message, also extended words of gratitude to customers, investors, supporters, advisors, partners and community members “who have helped us get here and contributed towards making our elections safer and more accessible.”

The company recently presented its remote online voting system to the Philippines Office for Overseas Voting (OFOV) and the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
