The Centre for e-Democracy (CeD) is pleased to announce the release of key findings from the SSHRC-funded Internet Voting Project; a study of voters, candidates, and election administration during the 2014 Ontario municipal elections.
Dr. Nicole Goodman, CeD Research Director and Assistant Professor at the Munk School of Global Affairs, will share findings from her research, which seeks to address the question: What is the impact of Internet voting on local elections in Canada? during a free webinar at 2 p.m. on Thursday, January 29th.
Nicole will discuss the benefits and challenges of using Internet voting in municipal elections from the perspectives of voters, candidates, and election administration, and how the inclusion of this technology is changing elections.
Some questions that will be addressed include: whether Internet voting can encourage non-voters to take part, how it changes the nature of campaigns for candidates, and whether there are cost implications for electoral administrators.
The webinar?hosted CeD Founder & Chair Adam Froman?will also provide some context regarding where Canada sits internationally with respect to electoral modernization.
We hope you will join us for this presentation.
