Bethel’s Accessible Voting System units have gone through routine service and testing. The Registrars say these systems allow a voter to make voting selections by a combination of audio and keypad or by a touch screen.
A dedicated printer marks the voters’ standard ballots with their selected choices. The voter then places their marked ballot in the tabulator/scanner, just as all other voters do.
While anyone can cast a ballot using the Accessible Voting System, it is designed for those who are disabled by blindness or do not have a steady hand for filling in the ovals on a ballot.
