One of losing candidates in Leamington’s election questions the legitimacy of the vote because of a problem with the computerized tabulation. Robert Tatomir is calling for a review of the results. Leamington hired Scytl, an online voting company, to run its election. Voters cast their ballots online and nowhere elese. Results were expected within half an hour afer polls closed. Instead it took nearly three hours to tabulate results. In a statement Scytl says it detected an “inconsistency” in the naming of certain files, and required additional time to deliver the results to ensure the integrity of the election.
… That’s not good enough for Robert Tatomir. “Let’s get those 7,099 ballots downloaded on paper. Let’s give them to an independent panel to review, and let’s tally the votes the old-fashioned way now,” he said. “Let’s double check, and let’s not rely on this electronic thing.”
