Accessible voting units available for disabled
October 24, 2012 · 11:05 AM
Special voting equipment called Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) for individuals with disabilities who can’t use vote-by-mail paper ballots are available now.
These special units give voters the ability to listen to the ballot choices with headphones and they include a keypad for voters with visual, cognitive or learning disabilities. The AVU height can be adjusted, and most also have an insert device for people who use sip and puff auxiliary aids.
Voters who need these devices can vote any time between now and election day.
