Online Voting Not Ruled Out After All
Elections BC: We just want to move slowly
Released by Elections BC
he Independent Panel on Internet Voting has published and submitted the Recommendations Report to the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia - February 2014.
The report contains the panel's conclusions and recommendations, and summarizes the benefits and challenges of implementing Internet voting for provincial or local government elections in B.C.
"The panel recommends to go slow on introducing Internet voting in
British Columbia," said Keith Archer, Chief Electoral Officer and panel
Chair. "British Columbians must have confidence that their voting system
is fair and trustworthy. That is why the panel recommends the
appointment of a technical committee that can assess specific Internet
voting systems against the principles required for a safe and secure
Internet voting system."
