Postal voting in elections has become increasingly popular in recent years, increasing the demand for solutions that can verify the authenticity of handwritten signatures captured on ballot papers. The Wacom Ink SDK for verification meets this need.
Preventing election fraud
Postal voting increases the risk of election fraud because signatures are captured in isolation by voters. The Wacom Ink SDK for verification helps mitigate this by:
- Enabling fast, accurate, reliable verification of handwritten signatures after the fact.
- Integrating easily with vote checking solutions so that thousands of signatures can be verified within hours.
- Continuously improving the verification engine, ensuring that accuracy rates improve still further over time.
