Technology Helps Voters With Special Needs | VideoJuli McDonald | 6/8/2010
Located at each polling center are Auto Mark Voter Assist Terminals, which serve voters with disabilities and other special needs. The machines allow voters to mark a ballot privately and independently through an optical scan voting system. Voters can use headphones to listen to choices, or they can use a zoom feature to read options more easily.
"It is often used by people who are in wheelchairs and need to sit. It really is an opportunity for anyone to vote," said Carol Jean Larsen, poll judge.
