Web portal

In the context of elections, web portal refers to a gateway available on an election division’s webpage that enables voters to have access to services such as obtaining or downloading a blank ballot application or a blank ballot, and in some cases marking and returning that ballot. To the extent that such portals are used, they should at a minimum include requirements for users to have authorized access to the portal in the form of login credentials, passwords or other proprietary access codes in order to use the portal.
