Recognition Highlights County Technology Service Delivery and Innovation

July 9, 2015 - The Center for Digital Government (CDG) and the National Association of Counties (NACo) announced that Snohomish County ranked among the top ten winners in this year’s Digital Counties Survey. The annual survey recognizes leading examples of counties using technology to improve services and boost efficiencies.

The survey, conducted by CDG and the Digital Communities program, in partnership with NACo,
identifies best technology practices among U.S. counties. “Congratulations to this year’s
winners for their work to continually innovate in an ever- changing technology landscape and
proactively address citizen demands and expectations,” said Center for Digital Government

In the category of counties with a population of 500,000 or more, Snohomish County finished in
a tie for 7th place with Baltimore County, Maryland, and Pierce County, Washington. This
