Voter Assist Terminals for Voters with Special Needs

Ballot marking devices are available to all voters with special 
accommodations for hearing, visual, physical, and other disabilities. This provides voters the opportunity to independently vote a ballot in complete privacy. This terminal marks the voter's selections on paper that becomes their ballot. Voters can select their choices using a touch screen.


Personal adaptives may also be used to assist voters in making their selections. The completed ballot is then fed into a tabulator, which scans and records the votes.
