CGI Group has won a $38.75 million contract to install a new voter registration system for California as the state seeks to comply with a federal law requiring states to have centralized voter registration systems.
The company intends for the new VoteCal database platform to provide a single source of voter registry to state agencies and 58 county election offices, the company said Tuesday.
California aims for the new voter registration system to automate operations and implement a uniform statewide process to fulfill the mandate of HAVA.
CalVoter, the state’s current registration database, stores a copy of information about new and existing voters from each county election management system that maintains this data.
Josetta Bull, CGI vice president and account executive for the state of California, said the company aims to deliver large-scale data integration and information management systems across the state.
VoteCal is also intended to help citizens register through an online portal, verify their information and find provisional ballot and vote-by-mail ballot status.
