Safran Identity & Security contributed to every stage of the electoral process, ranging from the electoral census to the voting day itself. The company used its latest biometric technologies to ensure deduplication of the electoral lists, meaning that each voter only appeared once on the list and that votes cast on the election day corresponded to their civil identities. The solution was used to revise the electoral list through biometric enrollment of new voters and of those who had changed addresses. This list, featuring over 6.3 million voters, was presented to the IEC before each election. On the day of the election, the solution electronically authenticated the identity of voters using their fingerprints and photo, and securely transferred the results once the votes had been counted.
For these different missions, Ivory Coast authorities used the company's secure, biometric MorphoTabletTM, for enrollment, authentication on the election day as well as sending voting results. Over the past two years, 30,000 MorphoTablets have been delivered to the Ivory Coast.
