ELECTION EXPERIENCE Integrated Voting Systems, Inc. staff has been in the election services industry for nearly two decades. Over the last several years our industry has seen great change in regards to the level
of scrutiny we all are exposed to as well as an ever-decreasing timeframe in which counties are expected to perform the critical tasks required to administer an election. To that end, IVS has been diligent in reinventing itself to meet this need. IVS has two full service VBM and/or ballot production facilities located across the United States, not only providing unprecedented levels of redundancy but also providing key election insight as to how different states handle different needs. This has allowed our team to build custom software and production solutions designed to not only make today’s elections easier on you, but future elections as well. Additionally, IVS has implemented a series of checks and balances, including county personnel oversight, in order to achieve a near ‘Perfect’ result. As a final measure of chain-of- custody we can provide county with a digital audit trail of how every ballot, envelope and voter were handled and mailed.
