Votation.com to host the Arizona online vote
The Garden City, N.Y.-based company (www.votation.com) will sign a digital contract with the Arizona Democratic Party today to make the agreement official.
"Votation.com has about 30 employees, and all they do is Internet voting," said Arizona Democratic Party chairman Mark Fleisher. "They are committed to it. And we were convinced that they have the security measures and systems to make this a viable and successful election."
The online initiative is designed to boost the number of voters in the primary, which saw numbers slump to less than 10,000 ballots in 1996, said Arizona Democratic Party political director Cortland Coleman [see civic.com, December 99.
