VoteHere Announces Mail-in Ballot Tracker Audit Solution
Tracks Each Ballot Individually With Complete Voter Privacy Protection
BELLEVUE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 05/31/2005 -- VoteHere®, a division of Dategrity Corp., a leading supplier of election audit and verification technology, today announced the availability of Mail-in Ballot Tracker, an audit solution to provide the first ever ability to track individual ballots while protecting voter privacy. Adding to its audit solutions for e-voting systems, the VoteHere Mail-in Ballot Tracker audit solution integrates seamlessly into any absentee mail processing system. Until now, ballot tracking was limited to tracking batches of ballots in order to protect ballot secrecy. As a result, election officials have lacked the audit tools to account for each ballot individually, leading to high-profile controversies in New York State, Washington State and elsewhere.
VoteHere's Mail-in Ballot Tracker can track every ballot while completely protecting voter privacy. VoteHere can deliver this unique capability because of its patented VHTi technology, which enables comprehensive audit and data tracking, while protecting the integrity and privacy of individual data records. VoteHere's software source code is published on the company's website for public examination for unparalleled transparency and confidence.
"In this era where elections are so closely scrutinized, it is critical that our dedicated elections officials have the best audit tools to handle such scrutiny," said Jim Adler, founder and president of VoteHere. "Mail-in Ballot Tracker provides this vital audit tool."
Mail-in balloting is on the rise, especially on the west coast with Washington State voting 70% by mail, California voting 40% by mail, and Oregon voting 100% by mail. Earlier this year, the Washington State Legislature authorized counties to switch to voting exclusively by mail. Furthermore, this legislation encourages the use of ballot tracking audit technology to "determine if mail ballots were received and counted." Only VoteHere's Mail-in Ballot Tracker meets the intent of this law while protecting voter privacy.

AzoogleAds (www.AzoogleAds.com), a leader in performance-based online advertising, today announced that during the first two quarters of 2005, the company improved revenue and EBITDA by more than 100 percent as compared to the first half of 2004. In 2004, AzoogleAds' revenues surged to $64 million.
In the first half of 2005, the AzoogleAds Network, which has more than 7,000 websites and publishers, generated approximately 46 billion cost-per-action (CPA) impressions. It generated 461 million unique click-throughs and facilitated almost 10 million transactions or sales from January to June 30th. These metrics illustrate that the AzoogleAds Network is one of the industry's largest CPA networks.
