Benefits of Using Tablets to Mark Ballots
Voters using tablets to mark a ballot can
increase the size of the font and change the color and contrast of the text. Tablets also help voters with cognitive
disabilities or limited reading capabilities.
Tablets work well for voters with limited
range of motion. Voters who are quadriplegic or have severe arthritis can use their fingers or a number of assistive technologies, such as
sip-and-puff systems, to mark their ballots.
See a demo ballot to understand how the ballot will display. This is only a demonstration and not a real ballot.
