Alberta: Local municipalities ponder move to Internet voting

Local municipalities ponder move to Internet voting

Edmonton, St. Albert and Strathcona County want to push ahead with Alberta's first test of Internet voting during next year's civic election.

The three communities are interested in allowing people who can't reach a regular polling booth to vote online instead of mailing in their ballots, says a report released Thursday.

The move requires a change to the provincial Local Authorities Election Act, and though Alberta Municipal Affairs is interested, it needs letters of support from councillors before it will act. --->>>
