Television Academy CEO Bruce Rosemblum stated that the transition "will ensure that voting is easy, private and secure."

The Emmys will move toward online voting over the next two years.

"This is the first in a series of new initiatives for the Academy that will be rolling out over the coming months," said Television Academy chairman and CEO Bruce Rosenblum in a statement on Friday. "We refine the Emmy Awards process every year, and this migration to an all-digital online voting procedure will ensure that voting is easy, private and secure. This is all part of our ongoing mission to activate greater member engagement, to inspire and help our members develop their professional potential and to bring new and long-established voices within the television community together to continue to chart a bold path for our industry."

The changes to the voting system are set to go into effect before the 66th Primetime Awards are broadcast in 2014 with the first round of voting conducted online and continuing into 2015 with all rounds going online.

Paper ballots will also be offered over the next two years to Emmy voters who don't wish to cast their votes online.
