Government Works: Elections Office wins national award
The San Bernardino County Elections Office won the 2015 Eagles Award for outstanding use of technology from the Election Center, National Association of Election Officials, for its development and implementation of the My Elections (M.E.) Gateway application, which delivers personalized election information to registered voters.
Every year the Election Center recognizes state and local elections offices across the nation for their professional practices programs. Winners were announced in seven categories, such as innovation, voting accessibility, and technology.
“We are proud to have the Elections Office recognized for its innovative use of technology,” said James Ramos, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “M.E. Gateway is a valuable tool for improving services to the voters of San Bernardino County.”
The M.E. Gateway application provides voters with their registration status, polling place location, voting districts, and other personalized election information that can easily be accessed from both mobile devices and desktop computers.
“We designed the M.E. Gateway to be easy to use and to provide registered voters with all their election information in one convenient location so that they don’t have to hunt for their information on our regular website,” said Michael Scarpello, Registrar of Voters.
The Elections Office’s internal IT staff documented the business requirements, designed the application, and completed the programming of the application in partnership with the County’s Information Services Department.
