A law created long ago to help preserve the integrity of federal elections in our vast country by not allowing those in the west to be made aware of voting results in the east until polling stations nation-wide are closed, will apply to digital tools like Facebook and Twitter. Strict rules under the Canada Elections Act prevent any instance of “premature transmission of results” until the last polls have closed in every electoral district in the country. Elections Canada has issued a warning to Facebook and Twitter users to use caution on today when communicating and posting voting results, saying the act also applies to transmissions made over the internet.
