Voatz‘s mobile voting platform has received an important stamp of approval. The company announced this week an independent Voting System Test Laboratory has reviewed the Voatz mobile voting solution and found it to be compliant with the requirements for United States voting systems.
The Voatz platform is essentially a mobile app for electronic voting in elections. It uses blockchain ledger technology to ensure voting records cannot be tampered with. It uses biometric technology such as Apple’s Touch ID and Face ID for authentication.
Voatz, a Boston startup says its solution has been used in 67 elections spanning across cities, counties, universities, nonprofits, and political parties. At the end of June, for example, Voatz was used for voting in the Republican Party of South Dakota’s virtual convention.
