CGI Group has won a four-year, $38.8 million contract with California to implement a centralized, statewide voter registration database system.
The system, known as VoteCal, will provide a single, official source of voter registration information, and will connect to multiple state agencies as well as all 58 county election official offices to improve registration efficiency, CGI said in a release.
VoteCal will include a new public website for people to register online, verify registration, and look up provisional ballot and vote-by-mail ballot status, which will improve the public’s ability to register and making it easier for voters to access or update their voter registration information, the company said.
