Canada Marks First Internet Election in North America
Eastern Ontario voters today were allowed to vote by Internet or telephone -- but not by paper ballot -- in what is being called the first all-electronic election of North America.
Despite e-voting security issues in the United States that have pitted some researchers, publishers and ISPs against Diebold Election Systems, the Linux-based voting system used in the Ontario election is as secure as or more secure than financial industry transactions, CanVote president Joe Church told TechNewsWorld.
