Accessibility (Disability) Issues

  • The goal here is to enable as many people as is reasonable to vote independently.

  • No one system will enable everybody to vote.

  • The disabled must judge which devices are best for which users.

  • Assistive audio devices also help those who simply have difficulty reading, such as dyslexics, senior citizens, and people who cannot read English.

  • Because the current crop of touchscreen DREs do not allow the sightless to independently check their votes with a paper audit trail, those will be the first votes stolen.

  • The voting machine companies are using the issue to force jurisdictions to buy their corruptible machines.

  • The National Federation of the Blind has a $1+ million financial connection to Diebold.

  • Members of disability groups call for ban of DRE voting systems, 3/14/07


Economical Alternatives

These devices allow disabled persons to vote on a standard paper ballot without using an expensive computer.

Nobody, and no machine, should be counting votes in secret.
