New York, NY -- March 18, 2020 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire
-- Global Arena
Holding, Inc. (the “Company”) (OTC
Global Arena Holding, Inc. (GAHC)
— a growth oriented, acquisition minded company, focused on
specific niche markets offering exponential growth — is pleased to
announce today that its subsidiary, Global Election Services,
Inc. (GES), successfully completed the North Dakota
Democratic-NPL Presidential Primary election, which received a
record number of voters.
GES provides comprehensive technology-enabled election services
to organizations such as craft and trade organizations, labor
unions, co-operatives and housing organizations, associations and
professional societies, universities, pension funds and credit
unions, entertainment organizations and political parties.
Retained by the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party, GES
administered the Firehouse Caucus, which for the first time offered
a Vote by Mail option prior to Walk-In voting on March 10, 2020 at
14 locations across the entire state. Over the next few weeks, GES
will highlight specific features of its process including
proprietary Voter Registration and proprietary Voter Tabulation
software, and how they impacted the North Dakota Democratic-NPL
Party Firehouse Caucus.
The 2020 North Dakota Democratic-NPL Presidential Primary caucus
had the largest voter turnout in over a decade. GES attributes this
growth in part to the Party’s decision to change the election
format whereby in addition to a Firehouse Caucus, the voter could
choose to participate in a Vote By Mail program, which ran
exceptionally smooth due to GES' expertise and proprietary election
GES’ IT staff customized our proprietary Voter Registration
software to ensure voters only cast one ballot, whether by mail or
in person and set up secure servers that processed voter sign-in
and digital signature capture in real time from a database of over
600,000 potential voters. GES trained over 100 volunteers, many
with limited or no technology experience on how to use the system.
After a short tutorial, those volunteers handled the increased
registration volume with ease.
After all the votes were cast, GES’ tabulation systems processed
the ballots using our proprietary Scanning and Tabulation software
system. This process utilizes optical high-speed scanners with
advanced OMR/OCR/Barcode imaging software featuring de-skewing,
de-speckling and image correction. The scanning and tabulation
process, which allows for three types of auditing capability,
occurs completely offline thereby completely eliminating the
opportunity for hacking.
GES's voting solution has now reached the point where GES can
apply for Federal certification. According to GAHC Chairman John S.
Matthews, “We want to thank our shareholders for all their support
over the years as GES has administered hundreds of elections,
constantly refining and tweaking our proprietary Registration and
Tabulation Software to accommodate the needs of each individual
client. I also want to thank everyone on the GES team for all their
hard work, and for delivering a superior voting experience for the
citizens of North Dakota. And special thanks to the leadership,
staff and the many hundreds of volunteers of the North Dakota
Democratic-NPL Party who worked tirelessly on behalf of their
GAHC will continue normal operations during this unique time as
GES’ mail ballot and online tabulation systems do not require
crowds of individuals for in-person voting. The Board and all the
employees of GAHC and GES wish all of our clients, shareholders,
and fellow Americans good health and safety as we work together
during these trying times.
