Idox secures local election contracts across Norway to deliver democracy to 1.2 million

Following a competitive tender process, Idox is delighted to have been selected as the official supplier of election services and support for 27 Norwegian Municipalities in the country’s upcoming local elections.

Idox has a strong track record delivering electoral solutions and services across Norway, with previous experience spanning national and local election deliveries in 2013, 2015 and 2017. This year, the team has not only secured many returning customers, but also welcomed four new Municipalities on board, forming a combined electorate of over 1.2 million.

Whilst the services provided vary for each Municipality, they typically include:

  • Installation and testing of Valgdirektoratet’s (the Norwegian Election Directorate) election scanning software
  • Provision of scanners and the hire of other hardware to support the entire election process
  • On-site and telephone technical support during the testing, mock elections and election period

Preparations are well underway for the 9th September election date, with the Idox team looking forward to working with its Norwegian customers once again – sentiments echoed by all of the returning sites, including the largest, Bergen kommune, who noted: “We had a very good experience working with Idox, and still appreciate the work completed and the top quality, on-site support”.

Alongside the electoral support scheduled in Scandinavia, it’s been a busy time for us with work completed for the England and Northern Ireland local elections, and the European Parliament Election across both the UK and Malta last month.
