"Many say the changes make voting easier because people can return their ballots by mail or drop them in boxes located throughout the counties. They also can cast their ballot at any voting center in their county instead of having to vote at the polling place in their neighborhood."

There have been many problems with the centralized electronic voting concept. A lot of retirees man polling places and are not sophisticated in the installation, use, and prompting of the use of the electronic voting stations to other voters who are also not new tech. savvy. There have been allegations of voter 'fraud'. Having correct addresses to mail the ballots to, as well as the actual "act" of having to compile and count the paper ballots makes it harder to "hack" into the voting process and change hundreds to thousands of votes on the fly. Those who are 'frail' now have the chance to have their vote counted.
