Spanish vendor Scytl has been selected to provide electronic voting software for the 2015 NSW Election. According to the Request for Tender (RFT) issued in November 2013, the iVote system will be an enhancement of the NSW Electoral Commission’s system of remote electronic voting, first used in 2011. Scytl was shortlisted alongside Everyone Counts and Smartmatic International Holding to deliver the solution. Fairfax reports that Scytl software has previously been used in Victoria on voting kiosks for people with disabilities. iVote is currently scoped to be used by those who can’t vote independently or who are disadvantaged by their location. A draft bill is due to be tabled in parliament in April 2014 that calls for the access to be extended to the whole public.
