Greetings and salutations friends of Electoral Services International, Inc. (ESI)!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
365 days ago, ESI was celebrating another year that had passed and, in many respects, 2021 was similar to 2020. Once again, the world continued to battle against the global pandemic known as COVID-19. And, once again, ESI continued to service its loyal customers both in-person and remotely.
In 2021, ESI delivered electoral goods and services to four continents/regions: North America, Europe, Africa, and Oceania. ESI’s indelible ink products in bottle and marker/pen form were very popular this year.
Once it was safe to travel and our staff felt comfortable doing so, members of the ESI team safely traveled to and from North America, Europe, and Africa (several times over) in the last year.
ESI’s 2021 highlight project was definitely The Gambia’s biometric voter registration (BVR) exercise. Notwithstanding its successful completion, this project (conducted during the pandemic) was very challenging, not only for our people in the field, but also with product supply-and-demand, and transportation. At the end of the day, an accurate and reliable voters list was delivered to the Independent Electoral Commission.
In 2021, the majority of ESI’s customer list was largely comprised of island nations and repeat customers. Large order, small order, big country, little country. ESI appreciates each and every one of our clients, who continue to be our largest ambassadors.
To our customers, staff, distributors, agents and other partners, thank you very much for another successful year. Let’s make 2022 a year to remember (for all the right reasons!)
