The device allows voters to make their selections using an audio read-back and touchpad, or touchscreen. The touchscreen option provides magnification and reverses black and white images. Voters unable to see the screen may have the screen turned off and use only the audio read back and touchpad features. The audio read-back feature provides all ballot instructions, choices, and selections in an audio format using headphones. After making selections with the ballot marking device, via touchpad or touchscreen, the device will mark the voter’s paper ballot and the voter will insert their marked ballot in the regular ballot tabulator used for all other ballots. Voters may also choose another person to assist them to vote, except their employer, employer’s agent, or an officer or agent of the voter’s union.
