Multiple Years / Paper MLB All-Star Ballots
Billed as 'the largest non-political election in the world,' from 1970 to 2014, Major League Baseball allowed fans to determine the starters for the annual All-Star Game using punch-out ballots. (The wisdom of such a system is certainly debatable.) Shown here is the 1977 All-Star ballot. During those 45 seasons paper ballots and ballot boxes were available at all MLB and minor league ballparks, at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and often at stores that carried official MLB-endorsed products. There was also a mail-in provision. In March 2015, however, MLB announced the discontinuation of paper ballots. This did not mean that fans could no longer vote; they just had to do it online. In 2015 MLB cited stats that showed far more fans were voting online than by paper ballot since the internet option became available.
