Washington State uses YubiKeys to protect critical election infrastructure
About our customer Washington State
The US State of Washington includes city departments, offices, and employments providing municipal functions such as election security, transportation and community development, and law and legislation.
Washington’s state leaders didn’t want to use a mobile-based MFA solution to secure access to election infrastructure because they were concerned about elections staff, including seasonal workers, relying on their personal devices for government business.
Washington began using YubiKeys when it launched VoteWA, a new statewide elections management system that facilitates same-day voting and integrates election systems across the state’s 39 counties.
