Ontario leading the way for online voting in the 2014 Municipal Elections

Apr 29, 2014

With over 21 municipalities to date selecting Scytl Online Voting for the Municipal Election in October 2014, Ontario is leading the way in leveraging the alternative secure voting channel for both advanced and election day voting.
Municipalities such as Toronto and Leamington are setting the ground work to help improve accessible, secure and independent voting for citizens across the board, with a special emphasis enfranchising voters with disabilities. In addition to the new online and telephone voting channels, various municipalities will also enable onsite voting so that voters who need assistance or do not have access to the Internet can still cast their ballot online on computers provided by the municipality. To ensure  a smooth adoption, extensive outreach programs will target different communities in preparation for the new voting options.
