Swiss Political System: More than You ever Wanted to Know (II.)

One thing I don't see mentioned in either article is the mechanics of voting. Does voting have to be in person? Is any of it online? Thanks for these articles. It is the best explanation of Swiss democracy I've ever come across. I wonder what the United States would look like if we more closely followed our federal model instead of having devolved into the centralized monster it has become.

2Martin Sustrik10moAs far as I know, most people vote by mail. There have been some back and forth with respect to the online voting. The rules probably differ between the cantons.
