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.

"The technology remains largely untested," Gennaro said.

So for Canadians, this election will be a lot like previous ones.
