E-Voting Working Group Survey
The Electronic Voting Implementation Working Group has been tasked with exploring solutions for improving the accessibility of voting within CUPE 3903 spaces. It is thought that a switch to electronic voting could improve both engagement and accessibility, particularly for members who are away from campus during votes or are otherwise unable to attend a voting station. As we prepare our report we'd like to get a sense of the membership's level of interest in electronic voting. We thank you in advance for your participation in this survey. (A copy of the interim report presented at last year's AGM is available in the CUPE 3903 forum as background for this survey.)
