What is an assisted voting device?   

An assisted voting device enables voters with visual impairments, cognitive/learning disabilities, illiteracy, and limited mobility to vote privately and independently. This device can read the ballot, magnify the print, mark the ballot, and verify their votes on a paper ballot.

The device does not count or produce a ballot. Users must bring their own ballot.

Assisted voting device availability

We have AutoMARK machines available 20 days before Election Day located at the Auditors office or upon request.
