The appropriate election process for each voter

Do you want to enable your voters comfortable voting, but cannot offer a pure online election for organisational reasons?
A combination of absentee ballot, ballot box voting and online voting is suitable, if your electorate is so diverse in age, profession or interests and your members are scattered across the country. With such a combination you enable your voters to cast a vote in the way they find most convenient. This increases your voter turnout.
