LET's start with the question, "What is an IP address?" https://www.techtarget.com/whatis/definition/IP-address-internet-Protocol-Address provides the following definition: "An internet protocol (IP) address is a unique numerical identifier for every device or network that connects to the internet. Typically assigned by an internet service provider, an IP address is an online device address used for communicating across the internet."

Here's more. There are two versions of IP addresses now in use. There is IP version 4, or IPv4, and IP version 6, or IPv6. IPv4 is the version used by the automated election system (AES). It has been in use since the 2010 national and local elections (NLE).
