Democracy thrives on the collective power of citizens to shape their future through elections. The question is, are we doing enough to maintain the integrity of elections? Are transparency and security being upheld throughout the preparation and planning of the electoral process?
We invite you to explore the world of secure ballot printing with us at Lebone Litho. Our expertise establishes us as a trusted ally for organisations and governments alike, striving to conduct free and fair elections and thereby reinforcing the foundations of democracy, positioning you as a symbol of trust that ensures every vote counts.
A Symbol of Hope
Reflecting on history, we witness the transformative power of a single vote. Nelson Mandela’s iconic first vote on April 27, 1994. The crisp ballot in his hands stands as a timeless symbol of hope, freedom, and a renewed South Africa, illuminating the path to a future where every voice is heard.
A Legacy of Trust
Lebone Litho is a leading provider of security printing services. While our roots are deeply embedded in South Africa, our legacy of trust spans across the SADC region, touching the shores of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mauritius, Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, Namibia, Seychelles, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and Zambia.
We’ve left our mark on the electoral landscape of several nations. We understand the challenges involved in security printing.
Key Considerations for Secure Ballot Printing
Ballot printing is more than just ink on paper. It’s a sanctified process that begins long before a voter steps into a polling booth—it starts with the very creation of the ballot.
The journey of every ballot starts within the secure confines of our state-of-the-art printing facility. With rigorous security protocols in place, we ensure that only authorised personnel have access. After printing, the ballots are securely stored to maintain their integrity.
Democracy relies on transparent ballot printing processes to maintain trust and prevent fraud. A clear and consistent format for ballots ensures voters can understand and complete their votes accurately, achieved through a standardised ICE format that includes features such as:
- Watermarked paper symbolises authenticity.
- Unique identity for each ballot through perforations aids in tracking.
- Intricate security holograms add an extra layer of ballot protection.
- Invisible UV ink markings act as a defence against fraud.
Precision in ballot printing is achieved through meticulous proof-checking measures to maintain transparency and security in the quality control process. This allows election officials to perform post-election audits using ballot auditing software to ensure that every ballot reflects its design without fault.
