Accessible Voting

Accessible Voting Units

Accessible Voting Units (AVU) are available for voters who want assistance in filling out a paper ballot. AVU can display larger type or can provide an audio ballot for persons with visual or cognitive disabilities. Voters can cast their ballot by using the select wheel or tactile button options.

The equipment also supports a limited number of assistive switches, like foot pedals or sip and puff.

Voting Centers

Voting centers offer the opportunity to vote privately and independently. Each voting center is equipped with at least one AVU, available 18 days before election day, until 8 pm on election day.
