The current system for voting is paper ballots and long distance voting, and the proposal is to use online voting going forward, with the provision for paper ballot/long distance voted if needed. By changing Article 11.5 Voting, Articles 11.6 Long Distance Voting and 11.7 Counting will be amended also.

The current MISU Constitution can be found here, the sections which are proposed to change are pages 22 - 24.
