Customer quotes

Christine Giordano Hanlon Monmouth County Clerk: “The combination of Scytl Voter Education and Scytl Election Night Reporting has significantly simplified and reduced the burden we face in the days leading up to the elections and on Election Day.

Kathy Dent, Supervisor of Elections, Sarasota County: “Scytl’s technology helped our office post results online in a timely fashion. Streamlined processes and impeccable support are just some of the reasons why we selected all of Scytl’s solutions.”

Kevin Tunell, Communications Director, Yuma County Arizona: “We were left in a bind at the last minute. Our previous Election Night Reporting (ENR) was unavailable and we had just 3 weeks to come to a solution. Scytl stepped up to the plate and had us up and running in time for the election. Not only that, our ENR has never looked better. The technology and support were unexpected. I’m still getting compliments from the public and inquiries from counties from across the State asking, ‘How did you do that?’”

John Gardner, Solano County Registrar of Voters: “Our previous process required phone calls, repeated call-backs, and manual processing for each poll worker.  We now can sign-up most poll workers within minutes through automation.  This is a huge savings on staff time.  Our staff have achieved what normally takes hours to run from our previous system, in just a few minutes within Scytl´s election staffing solution.”
