The Skypunch Technology Story


History Skypunch Technology was founded in 2018, but its predecessor company, ElectionsOnline, was founded in 2002 at a time when online voting systems did not yet exist, making it one of the original creators of the same. It quickly established itself as the leading innovator as described at What Makes ElectionsOnline the Leading Innovator—a distinction that has been repeatedly solidified over the years most notably evidenced by Skypunch bringing to market the first ever immutable and cryptographically verifiable voting system. Judging from how often a feature or upgrade introduced by Skypunch Technology is copied by others—it’s fair to say Skypunch Technology is the election service provider other election service providers want to be when they grow up.

Emphasis on Simplicity

Emphasis on SimplicityRecognizing that this system is one people will use to make their life and job easier, the expertise of Certified Usabilty Analysts goes into studying user interaction with it to ensure it matches a user’s mental model of how the entire process should work. This means that in your experience with Skypunch Technology, you’ll have:

  1. a user-friendly website that so thoroughly covers everything from pricing to how the service works, that even first-time users can administer elections from start to finish with confidence.

  2. the ability to test drive the service without jumping through hoops. Other vendors may permit test drives after you contact them and turn over personal information to a salesperson. At Skypunch you may test drive on your own terms, with no worry that it will trigger unwanted contact by a salesperson.

  3. no tricks or surprises with pricing. With the pricing calculator, you’ll know exactly what the cost will be without any hidden charges arising later.

  4. understandable documentation to ensure a smooth process from start to finish.


ValuesSkypunch Technology does not engage in certain business practices such as telemarketing or spamming either via email, search engines, or anywhere else. Trust and ethics are of paramount importance for any company, but particularly an election provider, and begins not just with providing robust, reliable software, but in all aspects of doing business.
