Alberta may test Internet voting

Alberta may test Internet voting:

The Stelmach government's new electoral reforms reject key recommendations from Elections Alberta -- including adopting fixed voting dates and leadership finance rules -- but allow for testing of online voting and help remove political influence over the process.

Bill 7, the Election Statutes Amendment Act, was introduced Thursday and responds to 182 recommendations made by former elections boss Lorne Gibson following a 2008 election that was plagued by long lineups, record-low 41 per cent turnout, and a voters list missing about a quarter of eligible electors.
