USB sticks with Ontario voter information missing

The CBC has reported that Elections Ontario is missing memory sticks that contain voters’ personal information. The extent of the security breach isn’t known yet, but it may affect people in as many as 24 ridings. The provincial agency has noted that the USB sticks are encrypted, so ostensibly any private information would be safe.

Ontario’s chief electoral officer Greg Essensa will make a statement regarding the incident at 11 a.m. Tuesday during a press conference at Queen’s Park.
