September XIVth, MMXVII
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
In this upcoming set of Municipal elections, the integrity of the vote must be preserved. Sure electronic voting can be good for say a leadership campaign, but there is absolutely no substitute for a paper ballot. I myself am voting by Special Ballot and mailing the ballot in so I know that it goes right to the Elections office. Still others will vote in the Advance Poll & others on Election Day itself. Paper is superior to the computer here as it is irrefutable evidence that the voter(s) got to choose whomever they truly wanted to elect for the upcoming City/County Council term.
