    According to the Grammy website:
    “For the first time, voting members will cast their GRAMMY Awards votes online rather than by paper ballot. This transition will provide greater flexibility for touring artists, eliminate the possibility of invalid ballots, and protect further against fraudulent voting. All voting members in good standing will be eligible to vote online in both rounds for the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards.”

    Will this new voting method truly affect the Grammys? Will this push younger voters to participate? Will there be less “old fogey” voters this time around and less “vanilla” choices?

    Get lost, DwieberGirl! Stop hijacking these threads.

    Anyways, I feel like we’re still going to see safe, predictable, and uninspired winners. I hope I’m wrong.

    How could this affect voting? Bland choices won’t stop being rewarded because that new, hip and urban thing called “the internet” is now a part of voting.

    And if all you have to do to vote is listen to stuff that came out months ago, why wasn’t online voting available before? Can’t think of a more appropiate awards show than this one to allow this way of voting a long time ago.

    How could this affect voting?

    It could entice more younger voters to participate in the process. Several sources have said that older (white) voters dominate the voting pool, so this could change things even slightly, especially since a lot of older people aren’t as computer savvy. The committee wouldn’t have created the online voting process if they didn’t think it could change things.

    Despite some of the reactions, I think this is a good topic.

    Younger people tend to be more mobile and change their address on a regular basis. Working musicians are touring and travelling to work in different studios and might not be at home to deal with paper voting forms.

    This means that under the old system, the people most able and likely to vote are the older generation that have almost retired from an active role as performing artists.

    However, I’m not convinced this will make a huge difference. The results of political elections and referendums (e.g. Brexit) show that young people, poor people and minorities are less likely to vote, even when the results are normalised for differences in difficulty in voting.

    The other factor is how people vote. In city elections where there are multiple candidates for multiple positions in government, how many people check the voting record and policy statements of each candidate? Or do most people vote along party lines or on a name recognition basis?

    I’m still expecting the more conservative choices to win over the more interesting and influential artists, but perhaps we might get a few surprises.

    @alex00g2 Thank you for your non-teeny bopper/troll/typical condescending post.

    It’s a topic that has not been mentioned throughout this season. That’s why I made a thread about it. I’m glad you understand it.

    actually with this year’s nominees, we can see some difference. i know that General Field nominees are selected by nominations review committee, but still 4:44 or The Story Of O.J. had to be in the top 20 vote getters somehow to be picked by nrc & i think online voting paved its way to it.

    I agree, but I want to be more optimistic about it! You are damn right about Brexit, but in this case we are talking about music, the voters life is about music, their job, their passion, something about their life is related to music, it’s not a political choice. I guess that online votes will change something. The old people themselves already did something, this year nominations just shows that, of course they always fail in some point but I can see they tried. The online voting process will make easier for younger people, so I think, with these scenario, that online voting is affecting the Grammy.

    GET REAL! Jay Z making it to Top 20 is NOT a direct consequence of online voting. He’s got dozens of nominations before. So when it comes to enough support for a nomination (not a win), he’s had that for ages.

    Jay-z had dozens of nominations in his own field. He’s appeared in the General Field a few times as features on a huge crossover hit. This is his first time getting in for his own work. Granted, we don’t know whether he got in the top 20 in previous years or not unless they release those results.

    He got in ROTY for Empire State of Mind in 2011.
