Commission to revise MSA Magic Software's proposal for electronic voting

Monday, July 11, 2011

Argentine IT provider MSA Magic Software Argentina has presented a 3mn-peso (US$794,200) proposal to provide Chaco province with electronic voting technology for the next provincial elections, local news agencies reported.

According to Chaco government minister Juan Manuel Pedrini, the new technology will bring "transparency" to the elections in comparison to the traditional paper methods.

The new system "means big savings in terms of resources because we are no longer printing the votes, but also a better control [over the election process] because the control check will be done through the system," Pedrini said.
