Paper Based Democracy

The labour party can talk up the need for greater levels of internet access but that should also include the basics in government services, such as the need for printers, pen and stamps. To apply to vote by post in England, Scotland or Wales, you need to download, print and fill in the postal vote application form. And if I don't have a printer how do I submit this digitally, like it's actually the 21st century? I understand the need for a vote to be posted, the return of a physical unique item like an individual's polling card. However I don't see how the application to receive the card also needs to be based on physically downloading, printing, and posting a form.
