In light of
- vote fraud in the U.S.
the project for E-voting in Canada is in need of hard scrutiny.
I sent a follow-up to my Sept, 2011 email to Marc Mayrand, Chief Electoral Officer, because of grave concerns about electronic voting. People in the U.S. have done an excellent job of documenting and videoing the “real world” of electronic voting machines. (See under “Categories” in right-hand sidebar: “Electronic Voting ” under “Democracy requirements”.)
NOTE: Elections Canada replied to my first email about e-voting, click on: 2011-09-07 (4) E-voting: Letter to Elections Canada and reply
BUT, I don’t believe I ever received a reply to the follow-up, below (it’s on my “to-do list” – – write them again!). The documentation of the problems and corruption are too compelling to be ignored.

Dear Chief Electoral Officer Mayrand,
RE: ELECTRONIC VOTING
REQUEST UPDATE on the current status of the project to conduct an electronic voting test-run in a byelection by 2013, as reported in 2009.
And response to TWO QUESTIONS:
1. Is Elections Canada conducting the Alternative Voting Methods project on a “partnered” basis? (reference job title, Assistant Director (Partnerships) of Alternative Voting Methods from email appended.)
2. If “yes”, what are the names of the companies with which Elections Canada is partnered?
Thank-you for your consideration,
