Private ballots for board elections, other, from election services vendor IVS

Building upon K&H expertise in municipal elections, Integrity Voting Systems was formed in 2001 to provide election services to private sector elections such as labor unions, credit unions, awards programs and other formally organized voter constituencies.


History, experience and credibility are our trademarks

peopleIntegrity Voting Systems is a division of K&H Printers, a company founded in 1908 and still going strong. K&H is driven by a commitment to integrity, vision, perseverance, perfect and timely.  That commitment makes K&H (and Integrity Voting Systems) possibly the most customer-focused and production-ready private election services vendor in the United States.

K&H started providing public election services  in 1932. We now serve more than a third of the counties in the western U.S. relying on vote-by-mail.

Drawing on the vast elections experience gained over a period of 70 years, we formed IVS in 2001 as a provider of private elections services. In the years since, we've proven ourselves worthy of the trust of many guilds, associations, unions and boards. We repeatedly exceed their expectations because we are guided by our five core principles, but also because we have the equipment and the people required to excel as a provider of private ballots and election services.

As a division of K&H Printers, we have amazing firepower at our fingertips. We have the technology, including a great IT team. We have created our own proprietary ballot printing systems. And our people have extensive knowledge about election processes. Speak to any of our IVS staff, and you'll hear the language of the election services industry loud and clear.
