Ballot is a voter management system that allows your county or township to easily verify and cure signatures on mail in ballots using automatic signature verification. As soon as a ballot comes in, scan the signature and automatically verify it against a previously signed sample to ensure accuracy. If a signature does not match, Ballot cuts down the signature curing process by weeks on average, ensuring every vote is counted.
Ballot allows you to collect signatures for ballot initiatives and petitions digitially. With our simple to use API and platform, easily collect signatures on your website or through email. With Ballot, you can even send automatic text, emails, and phone calls to voters to let them know about your petition or initiative!
"Ballot drastically cuts processing times and eliminates human error."
There are an estimated 162 million voters in the USA, and all may be mandated to send vote-by-mail ballots in this year’s election. Ballot makes sure that your county will not be overwhelmed by the increase in vote-by-mail ballots as the software allows you to store voter documents and information while ensuring all ballots are legitimate.
"Today’s processes for verifying signatures are outdated and inefficient."
Moreover, they are prone to mistakes. The "eye" test is the standard, and signature checkers are subject to long, strenuous hours. As time passes, not only is a worker eager to finish their day’s work but after seeing thousands of signatures, they become more prone to human error and to miss flagging invalid signatures. Ballot’s signature verification software never becomes tired or misses an error.
"A county’s ability to conduct elections efficiently, accurately, and in a timely manner is the cornerstone of our democracy."
Counties are the front-line soldiers in the battles that take place at the polls. By checking the signatures and storing the voter information internally on Ballot, every subsequent election will be easier to manage.
"An election is only as complex as the underlying voter-management software in use. We’re making elections simple."
The process to manage elections with Ballot is as simple as uploading voters, mailing out ballots, receiving the ballots back, comparing signatures, and counting votes.

Throughout the history of elections in the US and globally, voting has traditionally been conducted in-person at voting locations.
