A blind voter has lashed out at politicians who chose mail-in ballots for an Oct. 25 Ontario city's municipal election.
Geof Collis said he is 'appalled' by the decision in Kawartha Lakes, in southeastern Ontario, which he says has 'effectively discriminated against me and others, ensuring that my right to vote is neither private nor independent.
Faced with a mail-in ballot, he say: "How would it be possible to vote if you were blind without help from someone in one form or another?"
He would have preferred the city follow Coboug's suit and allow telephone and internet voting, which would have allowed him to vote from home. --->>>
