Article Summary: 

The article discusses the advantages of electronic voting over traditional proxy voting in condominiums following the amendments to the Condominium Act in November 2017. Electronic voting allows unit owners to cast their votes securely online, eliminating the need for proxies and reducing administrative burden. The process involves implementing an Electronic Voting By-law through a majority vote of unit owners, choosing a reliable online voting service provider, and revising documentation to inform owners about the new voting process. The article emphasizes that electronic voting promotes transparency, reduces proxy manipulation, and streamlines the meeting process, making it a more efficient and effective method for conducting owners' meetings in condominium communities.
