AODA Alliance Calls on Elections Ontario to Offer Telephone and Internet Voting in Upcoming as-Yet Unscheduled By-elections – And Seeks More Information about Elections Ontario’s Plans Regarding These Accessible Voting Technologies

Ontario provincial by-elections will be called in the next few weeks, arising out of recent resignations from the Ontario Legislature. As our latest effort to make elections in Ontario fully accessible for voters with disabilities, we wrote Elections Ontario on June 7, 2013. We urged Elections Ontario to deploy accessible telephone and internet voting in these upcoming by-elections. Elections Ontario is the non-partisan public agency responsible for administering provincial elections in Ontario, and for ensuring that the voting process is fully accessible to all voters with disabilities.
