The voting method has changed from paper ballots with tabulators to a combination of paper ballots with tabulators and internet voting. During the voting period, electors will be able to vote remotely using their own devices in the comfort of their home or at one of several in-person polling stations that will be made available. Advantages of online voting include less travel, removing time constraints, fewer line-ups at polling stations, and improved accessibility for persons with disabilities or people who are ill or away from home.
