Nearly two-thirds of Canadians would be very likely or somewhat likely to vote online in the next federal election, a new EKOS poll suggests.
In the poll, released exclusively to CBC: Power & Politics, Canadians were asked if Elections Canada offered a safe way of voting on the internet, how likely is it that they would use it.
Around 49 per cent of respondents said they were very likely and 15 per cent said they were somewhat likely.
Would you cast your ballot online? How comfortable would you feel voting on the web?
