Although 12,800 citizens, (33% of the overall vote), used accessible online voting in 2014, City Council voted 7-6 last night to remove the ability for voters to use this same method of casting their ballots in the 2018 election.
I’d like to thank everyone who engaged on this issue over the last few weeks.
Many will ask me, so this is how the voting went:
Voting to save accessible online voting:
Mayor Guthrie, Councillor Mackinnon, Councillor VanHellemond, Councillor Gibson, Councillor Downer, Councillor Billings
Voting to remove accessible online voting:
Councillor Gordon, Councillor Hofland, Councillor Allt, Councillor Salisbury, Councillor Bell, Councillor Wettstein, Councillor Piper.
