Combine Online and Postal Voting
An absentee ballot describes various forms of casting votes outside an official polling station. This may be because the voter is out of the country or not able to access the polling station.
Forms of absentee ballots include:
- Postal vote
- Online voting
- Proxy vote
Postal voting is the most commonly used form of absentee ballot, which may be applied in almost all elections. However, voters living overseas may want to use new electronic voting opportunities. Online voting enables voters to cast their ballots from anywhere in the world. To make the transition for your voters as smooth as possible, POLYAS combines postal and online voting. Voters can decide for themselves which voting procedure is more convenient for them. This ensures that no voter is excluded from the voting process.

Reduce Absentee Ballot Election Costs
Postal voting might be too costly in the long run as ballot papers have to be created, printed and mailed. Additional expenses include returning ballots and personnel costs associated with the manual counting of votes (or the hiring of expensive counting machines). Digital features of an online election combined with traditional postal voting can lead to a significant reduction in your election costs.
