Elections Nova Scotia wants proposals for online voting system
Elections Nova Scotia has issued a call for companies to submit proposals for an online voting system.
The request for proposals asks qualified firms to submit plans that include all related software services, information technology infrastructure and hosting services, as well as training, support and the full management for internet voting.
The province made amendments to the Elections Act in 2021 that allowed internet voting, especially by members of the Canadian Armed Forces stationed outside the province during an election.
The submission deadline for proposals is Oct. 19 at 4 p.m., said Elections Nova Scotia in a news release.
The full request for proposals can be accessed through the Nova Scotia tender notice website at procurement. novascotia.ca/tender-details. aspx?id=ens2022-01-rfp.
