HSB identification implements New Biometric Voter Management System in Chad
HSB Identification B.V. (HSB) has successfully implemented a new biometric voter management system for elections in Chad. This end-to-end solution allows the Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) to register new voters and revise the current voters list.
Despite the particular geographic context of Chad, with an area of 1,284,000 km2 and a population of 16.6 million, the CENI is able to update electoral rolls and register new voters using a few thousand sophisticated biometric registration kits. The collected data is transferred to the new central infrastructure delivered as part of the project. The solution of HSB also enables deduplication with fingerprints and facial recognition (ABIS), updating the voter register and printing voters lists and voter cards.
The voter registration process includes the registration of biographical information in combination with the biometric information consisting of capturing photo images and ten  fingerprints. The rugged biometric registration kit is designed to be easy to use in all climate conditions.
In addition to the initial hardware and software deliveries, HSB identification will maintain and support the system including transfer of knowledge and skills.
After the registration phase in October 2020, up to 8 million voters are registered and able to vote during the next elections. Thanks to the contribution of HSB identification Chad now has the most advanced technology to keep the voters list up to date for years to come.
