AODA Alliance Calls on Elections Ontario to Provide Telephone and Internet Voting in Upcoming Kitchener-Waterloo By-Election

An organized campaign has been waged since 1999 to make Ontario elections fully accessible to voters with disabilities. As part of this effort, we have advocated for several years for Ontario to provide the option of telephone and internet voting in Ontario elections. These technologies could be very helpful at overcoming serious barriers that voters with disabilities confront when they try to exercise their fundamental right to independently and privately vote.
