At the polls everyone is welcomed to use the assistive technology provided by the AutoMark machine. Using this machine, the voter can adjust the print size and color, listen to the ballot be read through headphones and mark their ballot independently. Just ask for the AutoMark ballot at the check-in table. Voters may also bring an assistant or request assistance to mark a paper ballot. We want to help all Americans vote!
