Should online voting be introduced ahead of the mayoral election?

It was a big talking point ahead of the general elections in May - should we be given the option to vote online? 

Well apparently 59 per cent of Londoners already online, want to choose the capital's next mayor that way. 

The poll by YouGov also found that it was favoured option among all age groups they asked.

Well supporters say it will increase voter turnout, and make the legitimacy of the next mayor's position more secure.
