Oscars to Allow Electronic Voting


Kimberly Roush, Academy’s director of membership, says the electronic system may be implemented “as early as this year.”

Oscar voters may soon be able to be cast their ballots electronically.

The New York Times reports that the Academy’s director of membership, Kimberly Roush, sent a letter to the 6,000 or so voting members Thursday stating that the electronic system will be implemented “as early as this year, and will certainly be in effect by next year.”

Roush asked members for a personal email address that is distinct from anything that goes to an assistant or intermediary.

“At some point, once the system is up and running, mailed ballots will be eliminated,” she wrote.
