Smartmatic technology delivers official results in record breaking time in Ecuador


For the first time in the democratic history of Ecuador, official results were announced in one hour after polls closed. This was only possible in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, the province in which electronic voting solution was implemented using Smartmatic technology.

“The elections in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas proved that electronic voting –when implemented nationally- will provide all Ecuadorians with a secure, fast and trustworthy vote,” said Antonio Mugica, CEO for Smartmatic.

In order to test different technologies available, the Consejo Nacional Electoral de Ecuador (CNE) used Smartmatic technology to automate the elections of the Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas province.

“The electronic voting implemented in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas, on top of being secure, is particularly voter friendly. This technology has been successfully deployed in hundreds of elections worldwide. That was one of the reasons this e-voting pilot was a success,” explained Alfredo Paredes, Project Manager for the CNE.
