Idox delivers eCount success in Glasgow

In a recent local government by-election held in Glasgow, Idox was on hand to provide eCount and Postal Vote Management Services (PVMS).

Scotland adopts the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system, making it possible for the electorate to vote for every candidate in order of preference. This is considerably more complex than the first past the post system where the public votes for just one candidate.

Due to this complexity, manual voting in an STV election can take significantly longer and may delay the declaration of the result. With Idox Elections’ e-Counting solution, scanning ballot papers can be achieved in a fraction of the time of manual counting and calculations take just minutes, improving the accuracy and auditability of results.
