BOSTON, MA – Clear Ballot announced today that the Election Assistance Commission (EAC) has federally certified ClearVote 1.5. The new release includes a series of modifications to ClearVote 1.4, which was certified in February of 2018. As Clear Ballot continues to expand to more states, like Ohio and Pennsylvania, additional features are incorporated with valuable customer feedback.  

The ClearVote system is a modern, paper-based voting system. It is the first voting system to provide every voter with an undifferentiated paper ballot at the end of the voting process. One of the ClearVote 1.5 enhancements is the addition of a larger screen on the ClearCast precinct tabulator. This will provide a better voter experience and increased accessibility. Other upgrades include interactive graphics and an enhanced user interface to provide more intuitive functionality to voters. ClearAccess, Clear Ballot’s accessible system, includes simplified hardware for easier set-up, transportation, and storage. 

“Clear Ballot is committed to providing our current and future customer base with election innovation,” said Clear Ballot’s CEO, Jordan Esten. "We reached our position as the fastest growing election technology company in the U.S. based on a company-wide ethos of continuous innovation.  Since our previous EAC campaign, we have incorporated valuable customer feedback into our products that we are excited to offer to our growing list of customers across the country in ClearVote 1.5."
