Brasilia, April 28, 2016 – Scytl, the worldwide leader in secure online voting and election modernization solutions announces the successful deployment of Scytl online voting technology for the Pediatrician Society of Brazil (SBP) elections to vote for the society´s new directors. After the successful deployment of the first online election in 2013, the association once again opted to only use the online voting channel to provide more efficient, secure and private elections.
This year´s SBP election was held between March 31st and April 4th enabling pediatricians to vote online from any device connected to the Internet. The election website created for the election – www.votapediatra.com.br – encompassed not only the information relative to the election, candidates and support, but also included all the innovative features required for managing a fully secure and private election.
Building on the success of the first election held fully online with Scytl technology by the SBP, the 2016 election was configured to support over 18.000 potential voters associated with SBP. Voting took place during 5 days allowing pediatricians to vote when it was most convenient for them. In addition to all the required security and privacy features required for the election, Scytl provided end-to-end support and the reassurance of a system that has been independently nationally and internationally certified and audited.
As online voting adoption continues to grow across Brazil, this increase is especially significant across various healthcare branches where recent uptake and elections managed with Scytl online voting technology continue to grow:
- Pediatrician Society of Brazil (SBP): enables all members to vote online from anywhere in the country at their convenience.
- Federal Council of Nursing (COFEN): allows over 680,000 nurses, technicians and nursing assistants the possibility to participate in the electoral process simultaneously across the nineteen Brazilian states and the Federal District.
