Trudeau Government wants voting by phone in next election

Liberal majority on the House affairs committee thinks Canadians should be able to vote by phone in a pandemic election. The recommendation was met by opposition warnings of a ballot box swindle: “It opens the door to fraud.” https://www.blacklocks.ca/feds-want-vote-by-telephone/

MIT researchers say they have uncovered security vulnerabilities in a mobile voting application that was used during the 2018 midterm elections in West Virginia. Their security analysis of the application, called Voatz, pinpoints a number of weaknesses, including the opportunity for hackers to alter, stop, or expose how an individual user has voted. Additionally, the researchers found that Voatz’s use of a third-party vendor for voter identification and verification poses potential privacy issues for users. https://news.mit.edu/2020/voting-voatz-app-hack-issues-0213
