London,UK (RPRN) 05/10/11 — A new ballot box designed to meet the demands of modern elections was officially launched at the Association of Electoral Administrators' (AEA) Annual Conference 2011.
UK-based Versapak has developed a user-friendly foldable ballot box, which aims to overcome common problems with handling and storage, while a unique top panel makes the insertion of voting slips easier than ever. The improved functionality has been achieved alongside the strictest possible security credentials, underpinned by a patented tamper-proof seal.
The box, based on the results of detailed market research among users, has been designed to offer electoral professionals a new level of security, simplicity and ease of use.
In creating its ballot box, Versapak has drawn from almost 40 years of experience as a specialist manufacturer of tamper-evident bags for clients including the NHS and Royal Mail.
Versapak, whose products are developed in the UK and ethically manufactured in Europe, unveiled its innovative ballot box at the AEA Conference in February.
Julie Goddard, business manager of Versapak's public sector division, said: -By listening closely to the administrators who manage elections, we have developed a new kind of ballot box that solves a lot of common complaints. Obviously we put an extremely high priority on security, but we've tried to make our ballot boxes simpler, both for the voter and the election official.
We've considered the ease with which these boxes can be moved around, the ability to store them efficiently, the simplicity of opening, the high standard of locking mechanisms and even the way a voter inserts their paper.
The new ballot box is the most advanced of its kind on the market yet a very competitive pricing structure has been drawn up
