Letter to the Editor, London Free Press

In a recent article, David Canton stated "Canadians have not been exposed to electronic voting."

While it is true that there is no electronic voting in Canada at the federal level, it is widespread at the municipal level. Primarily this consists of optical scanners, but touch screens were used in a limited way in Edmonton this year, and Markham Ontario even used Internet voting in 2003.

Electronic voting systems are unnecessary, unreliable and expensive. If Canadians want to continue our tradition of transparent, trusted elections, we must oppose the use of these systems. I have a website on the issue, Paper Vote Canada, http://blog.papervotecanada.ca/
