Councillor Chris Peabody is concerned about the safety of internet voting. Peabody says he has been in contact with two computer specialists from M.I.T and Yale who feel the same way. After reviewing Brockton’s yet to be signed contract with Dominion Voting, Peabody says these experts have identified a number of concerns — including the fact Dominion Voting does not allow a third party to challenge the system.
He adds there is limited liability coverage and Dominion Voting can not guarantee the secrecy of the ballot, and there is no provision for an audit or recount. Brockton has now requested a meeting with Dominion Voting.
Saugeen Shores Council has also decided to scrap internet voting due to concerns with the ‘heartbleed’ bug — and will allow mail-in ballots.
