3 Reasons for implementation of Image Scanning System The project was required to improve the transparency of the election results processes and thereby increase political party and media confidence in the voting and counting process. Political parties and electoral staff could view the scanned result slip images, and compare the signed copies to the results captured on the results system at all levels. Other benefits included saved time expediting query resolutions, ability to verify any result, and manage capture exceptions. 3
