Elections Management Startup EasyVote Raises $1.5M

The funding round comes from a single investment partner.

EasyVote Solutions, a startup that makes election management software for local governments, has raised $1.5 million from investors.

The company makes a software platform with five modules providing a range of functionality for elections administrators: inventory management, poll worker management, campaign finance and reporting, voter check-in and project management.

EasyVote has been around since 2015 and has previously raised a $1.5 million funding round from angel investors, according to Crunchbase. Its $3 million of investor capital is a relatively small amount compared to the aggressive fundraising of many other government technology companies — ZenCity had a $6 million Series A round in September, for example — but fundraising levels can reflect many factors. Some companies prefer to lean on business loans, family money or to simply reinvest their revenue. Some companies simply don’t have to spend as much as others.

This was a single-investor funding round, with Cofounders Capital providing all $1.5 million. Along with the investment, Cofounders Capital Managing Partner David Gardner is joining EasyVote’s board of directors.

The company has customers in 13 states, according to a press release. On its website, it lists localities such as Washington, D.C., and Atlanta as customers.
