HOUSTON, February 20 – When voters in the Spring Branch Independent School District go to the polls for the May board election, they will be the first citizens in Houston, and all of Harris County, to use the new Verity® Voting system from Hart InterCivic, a leading election technology provider in the United States.
The Verity system is a natural upgrade for Spring Branch Independent School District, a Hart customer since 2011.
“Verity is the most up-to-date, secure voting technology available and we are pleased to debut the system for Spring Branch ISD,” said Julie Mathis, CEO of Hart InterCivic, an Austin-based company with more than 100 years of experience providing election solutions.
“We are also working diligently to provide the best voting solutions for all of Harris County, backed by Hart’s exemplary customer service,” she added.
More than half of Texas voters cast their ballots on Hart’s election technology and Verity is the next step for those ready to modernize. It supports in-person electronic voting, in-person paper voting, vote centers and by-mail voting.
Designed and manufactured by Hart in Austin, Texas, Verity is gaining ground in many states as jurisdictions look for new alternatives to aging equipment. Verity delivers secure, transparent elections and the easiest to use system for elections staff, poll workers, and voters alike.
“We are proud to bring Verity to Houston’s Spring Branch ISD. It is secure, trustworthy and a great fit for Texas voters,” Mathis said.
