Viewing it as a possible tool to reverse the dropping turnout levels amongst young voters, Elections Canada has been studying the issues around introducing Internet voting (“I-voting”) in Canadian federal elections.
At an all-day panel discussion slated for next Tuesday in Carleton University’s Senate Chambers, speakers from Markham, Halifax and Peterborough in Canada, and California, Italy, Estonia, Switzerland, Sweden and the UK overseas, will discuss their experiences and the associated technical issues with implementing voting over the Internet.
The event is co-sponsored by the Canada-Europe Transatlantic Dialogue group at Ottawa’s Carleton University. Space is limited, so reserve your spot early.
