As part of the outbound process, our comprehensive software module performs multiple tasks. 

Voter registration database integration
Our software performs address verification and validation, move update checking and postal presort.

USPS Intelligent Mail® barcode compliance
Addresses are formatted to USPS® standards and compared to change of address forms. Additionally, an Intelligent Mail® barcode obtains automation discounts and tracks USPS® delivery.

Automated ballot assembly
Mail ballot inserting and addressing are integrated into a single automated process with an end-to-end audit trail.

End-to-end ballot assembly auditing
Election officials retain strict and auditable internal controls over the assembly and mailing of vote-by-mail ballots. This ensures the right ballot gets to the right voter.

TrackMyVote™ ballot delivery validation
Officials can validate delivery by tracking outgoing ballots through the USPS® delivery network.

 

As part of the inbound process, Relia-Vote provides the ability to validate voter signatures and sort the returned ballot envelopes during the inbound process – all via one streamlined system.

Signature capture
Scan voter affidavit/voter ID to validate the ballot is for the current election.

Automated or manual signature verification
Our proprietary handwriting analysis software compares signatures from ballot envelopes to signatures from the voter registration system and absentee ballot applications. 

Precinct level sorting
We sort ballot envelopes down to the precinct level and automatically separate challenged ballot envelopes.

Ballot envelope opening
We further streamline vote-by-mail ballot processing by opening the bottom of validated envelopes.
