CARY – Just in time for November’s mid-term elections, a Cary startup that develops election management software, is gearing up for expansion thanks to a vote of confidence from Cary-based investment firm CoFounders Capital.

EasyVote Solutions announced a $1.5 million investment from CoFounders on Tuesday.

As part of the deal, CoFounders Capital Managing Partner David Gardner joins the EasyVote board.

“Beyond great technology and loyal customers, we seek exceptional management teams passionately driven by a worthy mission…for EasyVote that mission is helping cities, counties and states run successful elections.” Gardner said in a statement.


EasyVote says it will use the capital to expand its operations across the US in support of local and state elections. The firm, which launched in 2015, already works with elections officials in 13 states. The company says its Election Management Platform provides “highly secure” and streamlined services.

Customers include the City of Atlanta, the state of South Carolina, and the District of Columbia.

“We are tremendously excited about what this new partnership with CoFounders Capital brings,” said Ron Davis, CEO of EasyVote Solutions, in announcing the funding.

“Their experience and expertise working with tech companies is exactly what we need as we continue our expansion across the Unites States.”

EasyVote Solutions was named a Top 100 GovTech company by GovTech magazine earlier this year.

CoFounders Capital raised $20 million earlier this year.
