Fort Orange Press in Action
How Fort Orange Press Makes Sure Every Vote Counts
Agile Team Approach
When working with Fort Orange Press, you are engaging with a consultative and collaborative partner. Fort Orange Press starts each relationship with an audit of client needs and puts together a comprehensive plan for a successful election solution.
Superior Data Management and Processing
The quality of voter registration data is imperative to the success of a campaign. Fort Orange Press has developed tools that can better format and prepare voter databases resulting in higher standardization rates with the USPS. Higher standardization rates mean the ballots are mailed efficiently and are trackable. Additionally, Fort Orange Press can integrate updated voter registration data back into the county’s database for future efficiencies.
Designing for Intelligence
The election ballot and envelope formats will determine the intelligence capabilities of the campaign. Fort Orange Press considers ballot and envelope design a top priority and designs, preps and proofs them in a way that ensures they will run efficiently on both the sophisticated inserters as well as the specific ballot scanners used by each jurisdiction.
Accurate, High-Speed Printing and Inserting
The key to precisely delivering ballots to voters is multi-level security and data integrity through every step of the process. Fort Orange Press’ production workflow allows for inline printing, with a security crosscheck system that utilizes barcodes and multiple cameras to ensure the matching of all components of the ballot package. Add to this a real-time auditing function occurring at each step in the process and clients are assured 100% chain of custody.
Proprietary Tracking and Reporting
Beyond printing, inserting and mailing efficiency, tracking and accountability are key to achieving a successful mail election program. Fort Orange Press developed a proprietary reporting platform to grant clients access to real-time production and USPS tracking data to monitor the progress of your ballot packages. The platform also offers voters the opportunity to look up and track their ballot through the mail stream.
End-to-End Innovative and Secure Production Process
