Electronic Voting: The Better Alternative?

Warren Kleiner
Publication date:
Article Summary: 

The article by Warren Kleiner discusses the implementation of electronic voting in condominium meetings following amendments to the Condominium Act, 1998. The Act now permits telephonic or electronic voting if the condo's bylaws allow it. The approach gaining traction involves allowing owners to submit electronic ballots for matters like director elections prior to meetings. However, challenges arise, such as the inability to change votes once submitted and questions about quorum and participation. While electronic voting is promising, it doesn't replace proxies, which allow broader participation and questioning. Electronic proxies, which existed before these amendments, seem to offer similar benefits as electronic voting. The article emphasizes that electronic voting may be a valuable tool for participation, but its application and implications remain uncertain until courts rule on specific cases.
