The AutoMARK® ballot-marking system provides autonomy to voters who are blind, visually impaired, or have a disability or condition that makes it difficult to traditionally mark a ballot. The AutoMARK® Voter Assist Terminal is the future of paper ballot-marking technology.
Adding an AutoMARK® device to your polling location helps you comply with the federal Help America Vote Act (HAVA) accessibility requirement. This will save you money by eliminating the need to reinvest in a new tabulation system.
