Colombia celebrates four years of biometric technology

Having reached its fourth year using biometric technology, Colombia’s Registry Office informed that thirty-two electoral processes have already been held with this system, which has proven to be efficient identifying more than five million Colombians.

Biometric technology has reduced fingerprint matching times from three minutes per voter four years ago to two or three seconds per voter nowadays, preventing overcrowding in voting booths. Biometric voter identification is expected to be one hundred percent implemented by 2014.
