Aristotle Awarded Voter Data Contract From Lockheed Martin

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

Aristotle, a political technology and data provider in the U.S.,  has won a contract award from Lockheed Martin Desktop Solutions (DSI) for constituent contact and demographic data for federal, state and local government elected offices. The data will be integrated with CRM technologies that support constituent services.

Lockheed Martin DSI is the a provider of correspondence and technology services to the House of Representatives. More than 350 Members of Congress and more than 20 governors as well as multiple state legislatures and leading municipalities use Lockheed Martin DSI for their constituent correspondence, workflow and casework management.

Aristotle will provide foundation contact information of constituents such as name, address, political boundary assignments and demographic information. The data enables congressional staff to more efficiently and personally respond to higher volumes of constituent mail and emails, and daily requests for constituent services, says the company.

Aristotle’s  databases reflect the public records covering more than 185 million registered U.S. voters in over 3,100 counties and U.S. territories,  plus adults residing in the U.S. who are not registered to vote, and some citizens of more than 100 nations. The files are regularly updated for currency and to reflect those who have moved or died. Enhancements to the files include listed telephone numbers and more than 40 million email addresses of individuals who prefer to receive correspondence by email. Constituents are given the option to ‘opt-out’ of emails from congressional offices prior to sending and at any subsequent time, if they so choose.

Aristotle was also awarded a contract in February from the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP), an organization within the Department of Defense. FVAP was formed to assist uniformed service members, their families and overseas civilians to vote absentee.

As with the FVAP contract, Aristotle will be providing Lockheed Martin DSI with the new congressional redistricting data, which is determined by the results of the 2010 census and information on file with the Secretary of State or State Board of Elections.
