The Impact Conference, part of Sustainatopia, is an eco-festival conference focused on social entrepreneurship. This year it features Everyone Counts’ CEO, Lori Steele, in a panel delving into Power & Opportunity with the Underserved. The panel will also include Ben Skinner of Tau Investment Management and Lawrence R. Kaplan, MD, of Cite Soleil Opportunity Council.
Sustainatopia is designed to educate and create global participation and collaboration for people with the common interest of changing the world for good, which includes promoting stronger ethics for business and proactive solutions for the poor. Everyone Counts’ sustainable, scalable, perpetually state of the art voting and election management solutions are increasing access for voters and driving inclusion standards globally. They are a perfect fit for the Sustainatopia model.
“Everyone Counts has a strong mission of social responsibility, seen through our scalable, sustainable model, which increases access and transparency in elections,” said CEO Lori Steele. “By integrating technology with best-practices in election administration, Everyone Counts enfranchises voters all over the globe. Increased access to the ballot, combined with auditability and security to ensure that everyone who is legally entitled to vote, can do so privately, independently, and with complete confidence that their ballots are accurately counted, is what drives Everyone Counts.”
Everyone Counts’ perpetually state-of-art software eliminates the need for antiquated voting machines and costly, error-prone, wasteful, paper solutions, providing environmental friendliness and cost savings for election administrators. Everyone Counts is honored to share these values and solutions with like-minded innovators at Sustainatopia.
Everyone Counts is disrupting the $31 billion elections industry and migrating government and private-sector elections worldwide to its Software as a Service (SaaS) model. The company provided election services to nearly 100 election jurisdictions across the US in the 2012 Presidential election, pioneered the first use of iPads for voting in the State of Oregon in 2011 and 2012, and provided the largest ever online voting to-date in a government election, in the State of New South Wales, Australia in 2011. Bosnia-Herzegovina provided Everyone Counts’ voting systems to citizens with disabilities in a Pilot election, so that they could vote privately and independently for the first time. 2013 saw Everyone Counts taking stewardship of the State of New Jersey’s Voter Registration System, as well as providing online voting for the iconic Academy Awards, which resulted in their highest voter participation ever. In 2014, Everyone Counts will transition the Emmy Awards to online voting, as well as work with South Dakota to improve voting for Military Overseas voters.
