Democracy And Technology

To the Editor:

Internet voting is now used in some of our Western world democracies. This mode of voting is not exclusive, but in addition to conventional ballot casting and absentee ballots. Internet voting adds flexibility in our ever increasingly complex lives and should results in higher voting participation.

Newtown should consider adding such a feature to its voting process, which would make it easy to poll Newtown residents on such important as the fate of the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Under that scenario, the role of the Sandy Hook commission would have been to gather ideas and develop options, while letting Newtowners decide.
