Canada’s election watchdog has begun allowing users to stream the U.K. election live from the United States.
A decision by the U!
Elections Commission (UKEC) means that users in Canada can watch the results of the election live on election night from a U.B.C. data center in the United Kingdom.
The decision, announced Wednesday, is the first time a U!k.
election has been streamed live to a U of C server.
voters will now be able to stream their results via the web or mobile applications to watch as they unfold in real time.
It’s a first for the U !k.
and, in particular, the United Black Colleges and Universities, which streamed results to viewers in Britain, for instance, last year.
It will be a challenge for other U.N. elections, such as the 2018 French presidential election, where the U of S and Canada both have their elections.
U!ks.’ move to allow live streaming is a step in the right direction for the UKEC, which is facing a wave of complaints about its failure to protect democracy in the aftermath of the U .
K.’s Brexit vote in June 2016.
In 2017, the UK launched an investigation into election monitoring by the country’s electoral watchdog, after it was revealed that the election watchdog was failing to investigate election-related misconduct.UKEC Chief Executive Simon Kirby said the move would make it easier for U.k. citizens to watch their own elections and provide more transparency to the public.
The U.P.A.C., a nonprofit organization founded in 2013 by British voters, has not made public the details of the decision, and has declined to provide a timeline for when it will make the live stream available to U.s. users.
The group’s co-founder, Paul McTague, said he expected the decision would be released by the end of the week.
