King to study internet voting


Dr. Valerie King (computer science) has been named to a five-member expert panel convened to study what Internet voting could mean for BC. King conducts research in randomized algorithms, data structures and distributed computing. She and four others on the independent panel will examine the pros and cons of the potential implementation of Internet-based voting for provincial or local government elections. Existing laws do not permit Internet voting at either the municipal or provincial level. Chief Electoral Officer Keith Archer announced the panel Sept. 10. It includes Archer as chairman, King, UBC associate professor Konstantin Beznosov, East Kootenay Regional District administrator Lee-Anne Crane, and former B.C. auditor general George Morfitt.
