AUSTIN, Texas -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Hart InterCivic Inc. announced today Prince William County’s purchase of the Verity voting system. Verity is Hart’s innovative new voting system that offers paper-based and electronic voting options on a common convertible hardware platform, central scanning, and intuitive software that helps to reimagine each step of the election management lifecycle. Verity instills the utmost confidence that each vote is captured securely and counted accurately, while also ensuring ease of use, equality of access and privacy for all.

“Verity is a testament to many years of hard work and research at Hart, and we’re thrilled that Prince William County has made this choice,” said Derek Hutson, President of Hart InterCivic. “The Verity voting system has been designed from the ground up to provide election officials and voters alike with an incredible user experience, whether voting or managing a complete election. We’ve worked hard to learn from all the lessons of the past decade in election technology, and we’re excited that an advanced-thinking county like Prince William sees that Verity is the future of elections.”

“Prince William County’s selection of Verity was the culmination of over twelve months of research and evaluation of election systems,” said Bob Heisner, Regional Director of Sales for Hart InterCivic. “Due to Virginia’s legislative mandate to move to paper voting systems, Prince William County’s prior generation electronic voting system will be replaced with Verity Touch Writer, an accessible ballot marking device, and Verity Scan, a digital ballot scanning machine. Hart and Prince William County will work together to make the transition from electronic to paper based voting smooth for both the election office and the voters of Prince William County.”
