Evolo Condos in Montreal
In an attempt to boost participation in municipal elections, the city tried offering voting by mail, but it was a lot of work for very little result and has been given up.

Could online voting work?
It should be feasible, but is it being done anywhere?
I’m pretty sure more people would vote if they could just enter a PIN number in a browser and click off a few check boxes. Or maybe a voting app?
Voting app won’t do. We have the lowest penetration of mobile phones in the Western World… heck, the Chinese have higher mobile phone penetration than we do. Telephone voting might work, but you would need to ensure who the voter is… so likely a letter containing your vote number, your PIN and the requirement that the call originate from the telephone number registered, so that someone couldn’t massively vote from one location.
We already have a problem with telephones in regards to political parties. They don’t need to identify their telephones, so you have no way of knowing who is REALLY calling you, other than to trust what they say, which is what lead to the Canadian voting scandal. It’s an insecure means of communication.
Well we do our banking online…
