Taber:

Request made Daily Digest August 18, 2011

Should Canadians be able to vote by Internet in the next federal election? http://www.facebook.com/questions/253089338044586/?qa_ref=ns on a Facebook site.

Hopefully there may be those among you Facebookers and just plain everyday E-mailers who might will consider sending in to the Digest YES NO UNDECIDED in the subject line of this post.

There may be even a few who will share their opinion as to why or why not internet voting oughts to be the wave of the future.

One post was received (aside from those who share their thoughts on BELOW (30) on a continuing basis).

Most certainly no encouragement to continue.

Subject: no to e ballots

Joe
 
An E ballot means the major pillar of our democratic voting system will have been voluntarily destroyed by the unknowing eligible voters
 
In 1887 the Westminster Parliament after much struggle by citizens passed the Ballot Bill . The SECRET ballot put an end to the harassment, corruption etc. of those wishing to participate in democracy in an honourable manner
 
The Ballot Bill means that there be NO witness to where one puts the X. We in Canada have inherited this privilege of voting
 
E voting means that one puts in a pin number –the computer becomes a witness to your vote as well as the person who reads the data
 
Your vote becomes open to any jiggery pokery present such as computer hacking
 
Also, there can be cases where one person in the household who operates the computer is free to have all eligible voters in the households vote the he way he chooses because he controls the procedure and enters all pin numbers
 
Why would any sane and honourable voter want to inflict further damage to our already fragile democratic system? What is more –why would any sane or honourable person in any government position of responsibility even think of this—BEWARE!

Many thanks.
