Multi-channel involves the configuration of multiple voting channels, which provide voters a choice of methods to submit their voted ballots in a convenient and secure way. It may include any combination of the following:
- In-person voting, when voters are expected to show up at a special location to cast their ballots, either with the use of paper ballots or electronic voting machines.
- Online voting, which provides the voter the convenience and flexibility to cast their vote on their own digital device (smartphone, laptop, tablet, desktop), anytime, anywhere, using a secure Internet voting platform.
The multi-channel process may vary significantly across jurisdictions. For example, some election authorities in the past have chosen to combine electronic voting for city polling locations with paper ballot voting for remote areas. Other election authorities have chosen to enable all voters to vote via the Internet, while still allowing any voters to submit a paper ballot that can later be counted electronically.
There are many possible combinations, which we gladly make available to election commissions worldwide.
