ADA-COMPLIANT BALLOT-Marking Devices
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.
