Municipalities in Ontario are looking to modernize the electoral processes in an effort to improve engagement and voting participation in elections at the municipal government level.
Existing alternative voting solutions aim to benefit the voting population as well as election officials and poll clerks with the interest of reducing costs and saving time.
Intelivote’s eVoting application counts votes dynamically, eliminating post-election ballot counting (and re-counting) in providing fast, accurate, and verifiable results.
As well, the Intelivote eVoting system captures and counts spoiled ballots electronically by forcing the voter to spoil only with clear intention to confirm their participation in the election with a ‘no vote’ count. Determining voter intent electronically is one of Intelivote’s many innovative characteristics modernizing the eDemocracy world.
Intelivote would like to add that the following municipalities will be supplying Intelivote’s eVoting services to their electors this fall for the 2014 Ontario Municipal & School Board Elections.
The Township of Clearview, the Town of Greater Napanee, the Township of Loyalist, the Township of McKellar, the Township of Carling, and the Township of The Archipelago.
Intelivote has executed more than 300 Municipal and School Board elections combined in Ontario, Nova Scotia and the UK since 2006. Having conducted electronic elections for the 2010 Ontario Municipal and School Board elections for 34 municipalities including the City of Markham, Intelivote is uniquely positioned as the experienced leader in eVoting service providers.
Many of Intelivote’s 2010 eVoting municipalities including the Town of Cobourg, have already rejoined Intelivote, supplying the Intelivote Internet and telephone voting platform to their electors this fall. The Town of Cobourg first introduced electronic voting in 2006 using Intelivote's Internet and telephone voting capabilities integrated with their traditional paper polling stations. Cobourg's aim was to improve the voter turnout overall and, through an effective education campaign, raise awareness of the benefits of electronic voting for electors. The eVoting solution was so successful, paper polls were eliminated in 2010, effectively increasing cost savings. Lorraine Brace is eager to work with Intelivote once again for the 2014 Municipal and School Board elections solidifying the partnership for a third eVote Election experience.
Further to the 13 municipalities already contracted, Intelivote will also be supplying Internet and telephone eVoting services for the 2014 Ontario Municipal and School Board elections for:
The Town of Cobourg, the Town of Mississippi Mills, the Township of Montague, the Town of Parry Sound, the Town of Perth, the Municipality of Shuniah, the Township of South Frontenac, and Tay Valley Township.
As Canada’s eVoting leader specializing in Municipal and School Board elections, Intelivote is pleased to welcome the 2014 Ontario Election year with more than a dozen Ontario municipalities supplying Intelivote’s eVoting services to their electors this fall.
Over the past four years Intelivote has recognized a considerable growth in the interest of electronic voting and auditable election capabilities in both government and private sectors. Organizations are looking to provide alternative voting methods that afford secure, yet convenient ways of casting ballots in keeping with voter anonymity. Intelivote’s expertise and management in eVoting support the delivery of transparent, secure, and accessible elections.
Intelivote will be supplying Internet and telephone eVoting services for the 2014 Ontario Municipal and School Board elections for:
