Organizations of different types came to Mexico City to attend the Exhibition of Technology applied to electoral processes and citizen participation organized by the National Electoral Institute (INE).
On Wednesday, February 22, 2023, the Mexican National Electoral Institute (INE) held the Exhibition of Technology applied to electoral processes and citizen participation in the country’s capital.
The purpose of the event was to look for alternatives to modernize the country’s democratic processes and to get into the use of technologies in participation.
Local Public Electoral Bodies (OPLE) and different companies, including EVoting, were invited to the ceremony. During the event, the attendees presented the advances in the matter and how the implementation of technology in the processes can contribute to a better development in its different stages.
Also in attendance were INE’s President, Lorenzo Córdova Vianello and Councilor Carla Humphrey, who in turn chairs the Electoral Organization Commission, and who was in charge of holding the event.
Not all of us think alike, not all of us want to advance in these issues, but it seems to me that technology has advanced, that it gives us certainty, security and, in addition, the pandemic made us move forward 10 years because we had to change to technology to continue guaranteeing the organization of the electoral processes”, said Humphrey on the implementation of new technologies in democracy.
In addition to this, through her social networks, the counselor thanked the participation of the attendees and mentioned that in order to advance in the adaptation of these new modalities, “familiarization and information” is necessary.
Finally, Enrique Rojas, Key Account Manager of EVoting in Mexico and exhibitor of the event, also spoke about the exhibition, thanking for the invitation and valued the importance of this.
“Being able to attend this exhibition, to which INE invited us, was a great pride. Being considered among the best companies dedicated to electronic democracy for the INE will always be a sign that we do things right. Also, being present, we realized how much people are interested in innovation in democratic processes’ ‘, said Rojas.
