Tanzania Presidential Elections

For the 2015 Presidential Elections in Tanzania, the Tanzania National Election Commission required a new biometric voter registration and verification solution that would inspire faith in the electoral process, and that could reach all 58M people – regardless of where they were located.

In addition, the NEC required highly advanced biometric registration kits which could perform in-kit de-duplication and immediately issue PVC cards to voters upon registration. The kits had to be able to run on both solar and main power systems.

A project like this brings promise to the future of secure elections for the people of Tanzania.
