The Online Voting Roundtable will leverage the insights, experiences, and research of experts worldwide to present key international findings and advice to Canada’s parliamentary committee on electoral reform. Presentations will focus on trends, attitudes, and impacts of online voting deployment — with key sub-themes of behaviour, policy, and security — and the prospective implications for adoption in Canada’s federal elections.
Opening remarks will be made by the Hon. Maryam Monsef, Minister of Democratic Institutions. Select panelists include Karen Bird (McMaster University), Aleksander Essex (Western University), Chelsea Gabel (McMaster University), Nicole Goodman (Centre for e-Democracy), Thad Hall (Fors Marsh Group), Dwayne Nashkawa (Nipissing First Nation), Jon Pammett (Carleton University), Leah C. Stokes, University of California Santa Barbara, Chief Franklin Paibomsai (Whitefish River First Nation), Uwe Serdült (University of Zurich), Priit Vinkel (Estonian National Electoral Committee), Dan Wallach (Rice University) and others.
