Voters in Jersey could use computer touch-screens to vote in the future following changes made in the States. The new measures are designed to make it easier for people to vote in public elections. Politicians approved studies to decide whether electronic voting at polling stations was something the island needed. The measure is one of several changes being brought into the Public Elections Law.
Among them are new rules concerning recounts and giving candidates advanced warning of provisional results ahead of the public announcement.
Teenagers who turn 16 on Election Day will be allowed to register in advance, and pre-poll voting stations will appear in locations outside town.
