Online voting not for everyone 0
QMI AGENCY FILE
To the Editor,
Never in my 83 years have I witnessed such a mess in Minden as I have in this latest term of council.
From unjustified staff dismissals, lame excuses, name calling and bullying of voters, non-tendering of overpaid contract positions, online voting … the list goes on.
I do not own a computer – I never have, I never will, and, at my age, I am not about to learn, nor should I be expected to.
I am not alone.
Many people in Haliburton County do not own a computer. Implementing online voting for the next municipal election will eliminate a good majority of the local vote. Is this the plan? And which candidate do you think will benefit most by this?
Oh yes, and according to Nancy Wright-Laking, online voting will save the township a load of money – I am all for saving money. Why not do so by eliminating unnecessary and non-tendered overpaid contract positions and use that money to provide a voting system that can be accessed by everyone!
