With the 2022 municipal election set to take place this fall, the Town of Bancroft is looking at its options to make voting electronic.
The Town will decide at their next meeting to enter into an agreement with Intelivote Systems Incorporated. The Dartmouth, Nova Scotia e-voting company will provide alternative voting systems for the election.
According to the contract to be signed with the company, voters will be given a PIN number that will allow them to vote by phone or online. Election officials and an auditor will be able to have secure access to voting numbers.
Town council will vote to sign the agreement on February 8th at their regular council meeting.
