(January 18, 2012) An internationally-headquartered company, SCYTL, is now taking over online U.S. voting systems.
The company has previously faced questions about the security of its electronic voting technologies, which are now set to be deployed in 900 U.S. jurisictions.
The firm already provides balloting for overseas U.S. military and civilian voting in nine states plus elections technologies in several districts.
Concerns have also been raised about SCYTL's ties to the Spanish government and to international venture capital firms.
The Drudge Report yesterday ran a feature entitled, "Foreign company buys U.S. election results reporting firm." The article documented that SCYTL, based in Barcelona, acquired 100% of SOE Software, the leading software provider of election management solutions in the United States.
The official press release announcing the acquisition noted that SCYTL is a portfolio company of leading international venture capital funds Nauta Capital, Balderton Capital and Spinnaker.
