Internet Voting Success…

Over the past two weeks, over 11,000 Ontario NDP party members voted for their leader using the Intelivote platform for Internet and Telephone voting.  The event was reported by officials to be ‘an unqualified success’ using a combination of mail in ballots, Internet voting, telephone voting and kiosk voting from the convention floor.

The Intelivote platform has been used internationally to deliver electronic elections successfully.  Voters are issued a Personal Identification Number that they can use to participate in any one of the voting channels, there is no need to declare how you intend to vote in advance, no need to pre-register for voting, and no need to leave your living room if that’s what you choose to do.

Once again Intelivote has proven itself as the world leader in electronic democracy.
