BURLINGTON, ON

 

When the house is filled with people who are engaged, informed and active in their communities you know the politics of the city, the province and the country are going to get talked over.

The United Nations report on Climate Change and the Ontario Premier’s burning desire to end the federal carbon tax had heads shaking – even those of the dyed blue crowd.

The politics of both Hamilton and Burlington got a good going over. One Aldershot resident asked who I thought was going to be elected in her community. We were on the same page. I asked if she had voted yet and replied – No, the election isn’t until the 22nd. She didn’t know she could vote on line when the kids were in bed.

City Clerk will oversee the municipal election and sign the document that makes the winners official.

    Does anyone know what EFFECTIVE safeguards are in place to protect the integrity of online voting? Apparently both federal and provincial governments have rejected this form of voting based on security concerns.

    I was able to vote online without issue. But my wife … after registering she didn’t get to the second stage. She didn’t receive her PIN and now trying to reregister it says voter validation is wrong. There doesn’t appear a means to send the PIN again.
