Building Standards for Online Voting: Safeguarding the Industry

This goal of this project is to develop a Standards Proposal and initial framework to guide the use of online voting in municipal elections in Ontario. Elections in municipalities in Ontario are among the most digital in the world, yet there are no guidelines to shepherd use of the technology. Working with our partners we will develop a Standards Proposal to co-create online voting standards with stakeholders (i.e., municipalities, vendors, local associations). The project will focus on Ontario as a case study to establish proof of concept with the eventual objective of building a national framework.
