Learn how to vote online on Sept. 3

Voters who want the low-down on Internet voting are being invited to a hands-on demonstration on Sept. 3.
“Online voting isn’t new to some Ontario municipalities, but it is for Guelph,” city clerk Stephen O’Brien said in a news release.
“We have worked closely with our vendor to ensure the platform functions properly. This presentation will help assure the public of the voting process through a hands-on mock vote.”
The presentation will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in council chambers in city hall.
City staff will be joined by Nicole Goodman, a researcher focusing on e-Democracy at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, for a presentation on alternative voting processes in place across the province. The presentation will highlight the benefits of the online voting process, the release said.
Then, following a demonstration of the Internet voting system, residents will be provided mock voter profiles to be used to vote for mock candidates in a demo election.
Residents wishing to take part are asked to bring their own electronic device, such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet. A limited number of computers will also be available for those without a mobile device.
Election day is Oct. 27, but residents can vote early from anywhere, on any platform, anytime between Tuesday Oct. 7 at midnight and Friday Oct. 24 at 11:59 p.m.
There will also be in-person advance voting in mid-October at city hall, the Evergreen Seniors Centre and Stone Road Mall.
