During the next local elections of October 15th, for the first time in the north of Canada the votes cast by Iqaluit citizens will be counted with electronic machines.

One of the main advantages of this system is that it eliminates all the costs associated with the hiring of personnel who count the votes. Automating this part of the election not only reduces costs, but also increases accuracy.

Authorities expect that the counting -which used to take 6 hours- will be done in minutes.
