Auckland Council backs online voting plan

From Morning Report, 8:37 am on 21 September 2018

Auckland Council is rejecting claims a new online voting system will be dangerous for New Zealanders. An Australian IT expert told Morning Report yesterday New Zealand could face widespread electoral fraud if it adopts online voting for local government elections. Nine councils including Auckland, Wellington, Hamilton and Tauranga want to use online voting at next year's elections. Marguerite Delbet is general manager of Democracy Services at Auckland Council. She talks to Guyon Espiner.
