Veridos delivers more than 74 million Mexican voter ID cards

24/07/19

Identity solutions provider Veridos has announced the acquisition of a major contract with the Mexican Instituto Nacional Electoral (INE). This project is expected to deliver a minimum of 74 million identification documents to Mexican citizens during the contract duration of five years. The highly-secure, durable ID cards will ease verification processes and enhance national security.

This complete service for INE will enable secure production, personalization, and verification of Mexican Voter ID cards. At a production rate of 90,000 ID cards per day, these identity documents will include 14 preprinted security features, both forensic and invisible to the naked eye. Thanks to the high-resolution printing at 12,800 DPI, the ID cards are very difficult to forge. The personalized documents will include two encrypted QR codes that contain biographic and biometric information about the citizen. A specially developed smartphone-based application will enable a smooth and secure verification process. Furthermore, Veridos will provide a fulfillment service that will enable Voter IDs to be sent in a security envelope to Mexicans living abroad.

Rene Miranda, Executive Director at the Federal Register of Voters, stated: “Veridos’ implementation will allow INE not only to protect the citizen’s identity, but also to enhance security levels. We are creating added value for the environment and society in general; through new and better production and verification technologies and taking care of the entire production process, assuring every step of the production, and considering recycling scrap material processes”.

J. Rolando Colchado, Managing Director of Veridos Mexico, added: “Thanks to multiple security features and state-of-the-art verification methods, our identity solution is highly reliable and trustworthy. We are delighted to continue this partnership with INE that has already started in 2013 and excited to see our voting identity solution implemented in Mexico”.
