Online voting, it is time

It’s time to vote on the internet – 21 Oct 2007 – NZ Herald: Technology News from New Zealand and around the World

Peter Griffin discusses voting via the internet. I have to agree with him.
[quote]A letter came in the mail in the run-up to the election. I still haven’t opened it. Nor have I opened the bills from Sky TV, Telecom and Genesis Energy it is buried beneath.

That’s because, where possible, I organise my life – pay bills, book flights, check my bank balance – on the internet. And if I could vote on the internet, I’d probably have had a say in who is going to run Wellington for the next three years.[/quote]

I even go further than that, I buy my groceries online and have them delivered to the door and select my books from the library using the brilliant eLGAR system. I am at the point that I refuse now to deal with anyone that doesn’t have an online presence and buy all my Christmas, Birthday etc presents from Trademe again having them delivered to the door.

Time for online voting and having democracy delivered to the door.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
