AUSTIN Texas, March 30– As part of the nation’s critical infrastructure, Hart InterCivic has outlined its plan to support a growing demand for Vote by Mail operations throughout the country.
“COVID-19 has disrupted many facets of American life, but the importance of supporting this election season cannot be overstated. For many jurisdictions, that means scaling their Vote by Mail operations. Hart is here to offer our support to the greater elections community and provide options to ensure every American can cast a ballot, securely and safely,” said Julie Mathis, President and CEO of Hart InterCivic.
Some of the ways in which Hart is prepared to respond to increases in Vote by Mail volume include:
- Increasing the available inventory of Vote by Mail Solutions to meet demand.
- Utilizing technology to allow virtual training for customers’ Vote by Mail infrastructure and processes.
- Leveraging our recurring webinar series to provide pertinent updates and details regarding the evolving election landscape and Vote by Mail operations.
- Offering a range of flexible financing for unplanned expenditures, including purchasing, leasing and renting options to new and existing customers to connect them with the Vote by Mail solutions they require.
- As the Vice Chair of the Dept. of Homeland Security’s Sector Coordinating Council (SCC), Hart continues to lead nationally. We’re working across the industry to coordinate informational and emergency preparedness materials that will assist local officials planning for upcoming elections during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hart is also working with state and federal officials to continue voting system certification efforts so that we can continue to provide jurisdictions with the most recent system upgrades.
