LETTER: A Step in the Right Direction

Thursday, June 29, 2017

Oro-Medonte council should be applauded for moving our township into the 21st Century by recently deciding to include electronic voting in the next municipal election.

The 2018 voting process will now include options for paper ballot in advance polls, in addition to telephone and Internet voting for a longer period of time (a week to 10 days).

At the municipal level, Canada has become a world leader in Internet voting, with six provinces already passing legislation to allow various forms of electronic participation.

Their support was whole-hearted, Brace reported afterwards, and the record of success with Intellivote is solid.
