Reinstate online voting or come up with an alternative for the 2018 municipal election in Guelph

This petition had 10 supporters

Recently Guelph City Council has decided in the very unlikely event of hacking, that they don't want online voting for the 2018 municipal election. They also haven't come up with a viable alternative to it.

This affects many people, this affects those with mobility issues, those with young children, shift workers, those who have social anxiety disorders and agoraphobia.

Of the 86,574 of eligible voters, 45% participated in the last election and 12,768  of those ballots were cast online. Compared to 2010 where 28,072 ballots were cast or about 33.91%. 2014 had seen a little over an 11% increase in ballots cast.

The solution is simple, reinstate it... or come up with an alternative like phone in ballots or mail in ballots to make it more accessible.
