The North Carolina State Board of Elections has certified the Verity® Voting system from Hart InterCivic. This much-anticipated certification of Verity clears the way for election officials to begin upgrading voting systems with Verity – the modern secure system that fits the way North Carolina votes.
“Verity brings a fresh approach to North Carolina,” said Phillip Braithwaite, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic. “Verity is the voting system of choice for jurisdictions across the country, and 95 percent of customers who switched from another vendor gave Hart’s service the highest satisfaction rating in our most recent customer survey. We are eager to show North Carolina voters an easier, more trustworthy experience.”
A leader in the elections industry for over 100 years, Hart has developed deep expertise in helping jurisdictions of all sizes safely and efficiently transition from outdated voting equipment to reliable, modern solutions. Hart has gained a reputation as a trusted partner for high-challenge implementations with a proven track record of success.
Verity’s advantages for North Carolina include:
- The Verity configuration for North Carolina is a hand-marked paper ballot system and does not ever embed voter selections in a barcode
- Best-in-industry security protocols, including white listing, encryption, two-factor authentication and redundant data storage to safeguard the sanctity of the vote
- Easiest to use system for voters and election officials with plain-language instructions and consistently user-centric software and hardware design
- Full accessibility features provide an equal and independent experience for voters with disabilities
These features and every other Verity function were carefully vetted during the North Carolina certification process. Combined with the rigors of federal certification by the Election Assistance Commission (EAC), the State’s process assures election stakeholders that the system will deliver trustworthy results on behalf of the state’s voters.
