The Republic of Guinea, with a population of almost 12.5 million people, set its sights in modernizing its election process. To ensure that international standards are observed, the country needed to update each stage of the parliamentary elections.
To prevent election fraud, a biometric registry is necessary to make sure that each registered person gets exactly one vote. The challenge is to collect data in the field from those who want to participate in the election process and do it on time.
Innovatrics built the registry itself and also provided the hardware. It also installed software for field stations that were used to collect data and trained the overseers of the process. It has been explicitly designed to collect high-quality biometric samples without compromising user experience.
It also migrated old records and checked both old and new data for duplicates and obvious errors such as enrolled minors, processing 7 million high quality unique voter records. This was done using face recognition and AI-driven age estimation. The new system has a registration throughput of 250 applicant registrations per minute.
Innovatrics delivered the biometric registry in record time. It also devised a secure process to collect data from the field stations even without reliable high-speed internet connection, ensuring the data is complete. The elections adhered to international standards according to independent observers.
