I know that, in the past, the need to get a BOKI certificate was perceived as a barrier to electronic voting.  That requirement has been removed.

My (possibly inaccurate) interpretation is that our electronic votes fall within the provision for "postal votes" which are to be tallied at the meeting and annexed to the minutes of the meeting. I believe the maximum that can be allowed is to do the paper ballots earlier in the day and tally the electronic votes a few hours after (but before the close of the meeting).

My current plan is to open e-voting about a week before the meeting, and to close e-voting at the same time as on-site voting is closed.
