Smartmatic shares experiences with election experts in Washington DC
United Kingdom, London - November 21, 2016- “All over the world, there is frustration and anger. A lot of people feel that democracy doesn’t represent them. All of us who care deeply about this need to take the time this week to learn from each other and see how we can restore the faith in democracy. We must argue forcefully for the kind of elections which leave people confident that their vote was accurately and fairly counted and that it will be reflected in the outcome.”
With these remarks, Smartmatic’s Chairman, Lord Malloch-Brown introduced the 2016 U.S. Election Program and Seventh Global Elections Organization (GEO-7) Conference organized by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES).
The event, held from November 6-10, 2016, was the largest international gathering of election professionals of the year, with representatives from Albania to Zimbabwe in attendance. More than 500 guests attended the conference; among them 250 election management bodies from around the world.
