There are no, zero, standards for voting technologies in Canada. It’s kind of mindboggling considering we use both computer vote counting in some provinces, as well as Internet voting in some municipalities.
Thankfully Ontario recognized this and recommended establishing standards and certification for elections technology.
That recommendation has now been implemented, in the
Advisory Committee on Standards for Voting Technologies
The committee is made up of individuals chosen by each political party in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario and three other members appointed by the Chief Electoral Officer.
To date there have been three meetings:
- December 8, 2021 – Agenda (PDF), minutes (PDF)
- February 16, 2022 – Agenda (PDF), minutes (PDF)
- April 6, 2022 – Agenda (PDF), minutes not yet available
No other material has been posted online.
