Internet Election Coming to Retirement Association

THE SAN Mateo County Employees Retirement is planning to allow members to vote on the Internet for their next trustee election to be held in June 2010. All of their previous elections have been on a paper ballot. The hope is that an Internet election will increase participation, which has been about 20% of eligible voters for recent elections.

After substantial research, SamCERA has concluded "that an Internet election will be not only secure, but probably more secure than paper ballot elections. It will also be green (less paper and less gas burning delivery involved), and more convenient for voters."

Everyone Counts is the software provider and the San Mateo County Elections office will actually conduct the election.
