Academy: Members Who E-Voted Can Switch to Paper
In a release, AMPAS touts a record number of votes during the nominations period, despite widely reported e-voting problems.
Any Academy member who e-voted for the Oscar nominations can switch to paper for their final vote, the Academy said Tuesday.
“One of our basic goals at the Academy is to increase member engagement. Despite some challenges, more members voted for this year’s nominations than they have in the past several years,” Academy COO Ric Robertson said in a release. “We are looking forward to a continuation of that trend in the final voting.”
Voting starts Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 a..m. PST and closes Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 5 p.m. PST. Members will also be able to vote using paper ballots, online, or via several voting stations in Los Angeles, New York, and London, and a 24-hour call center, the Academy said.
