Elections Ontario Categorically Refuses to Deploy Telephone and Internet Voting in Any By-election IN 2012

As we detailed in our May 14, 2012 letter to you, Elections Ontario has been on notice for at least two years of the need to be ready to test telephone and internet voting in a by-election in 2012. Fully a year and a half ago, on December 3, 2010, Elections Ontario committed in writing: “We plan to be ready for this testing in by-elections held after January 1, 2012…” Elections Ontario’s refusal to do so, set out in Ms. Wells’ May 22, 2012 letter to us, is a breach of that important commitment.
