Geo-Enabled Elections

Integrating GIS in elections management ensures that voters are placed in the right voting district, receive the right ballot, and vote in the right electoral contests. It also saves time and work effort, facilitates audits, and makes redistricting easier. Fewer errors, easy visualization, and greater transparency increase voters’ confidence that their voices are being heard.
