Voter Accessibility

Each polling place must include a voting system that is accessible for individuals with disabilities according to the Help America Vote Act of 2002.

The AutoMARK provides Minnesota voters additional accessibility at the polling place. The device allows voters with disabilities to vote independently and privately by providing various accessibility options for marking their ballot. The device is equipped with a screen that can enlarge text for easier viewing, a high contrast display of the ballot for voters with limited vision, has headphones to allow a voter to listen privately to an audio version of the ballot, and has an additional connection for other accessibility devices.

See a demonstration of this device with a video from the Office of the Secretary of State. See the demonstration.
