Oscar Vote Experiences Problems With E-Voting Veers Into An Inconvenient Truth

December 28, 2012

It looks like online Oscar voting is hitting a few snags, which some Academy members worry might depress voting participation to its lowest level in years.Voting to determine the next set of Oscar nominees began Dec. 17 and will extend through Jan. 3. On Dec. 26, I reached out to a wide cross-section of the Academy to see if they tried to vote online (an Academy spokesperson tells me that “a great majority” of members have registered to do so) and, if so, to characterize their experience. Roughly half of the members reached said they experienced problems navigating the site; more than one described it as a “disaster.” They also worried that hackers could compromise the Oscar vote.
