Q: Fab 5 have just kicked all Veterans that have fallen in battle that protected our right to put our X on a paper ballot. A lot of Seniors also are not computer literate and therefore will not be able to vote. I do not trust the city hall people to put in the right selection if I have to go to them. Also, it eliminates the secret vote. This type of voting is wrong and should be scrapped and paper ballots reinstated. I do not like the fact that a company in Spain is controlling our election and its outcome.
A: Your sentiments were shared by many who attended the first information session, including myself. The best plan of action at this stage is to make sure you do vote and help others do the same. Our voices matter, and we shouldn’t let the technology barrier take that away from anyone. If elected, I will support measures to bring back the option to vote by traditional paper ballot. Voting should be accessible to all eligible citizens. Accessibility should not be undermined in the name of ‘efficiency’.
