Your Vote is Your Business
One of the hallmarks of voting is the personal and private nature of the ballot that allows you to make your own choices.
However, many people with disabilities have not been able to enjoy the privilege of a confidential vote. People who are not physically able to hold or maneuver a pen or pencil to vote, as well as those who cannot see the actual ballot, have traditionally had to verbalize their vote to an attendant, poll worker or family member.
Fortunately, the State of Arizona equips its polling places with accessible voting machines that help voters throughout the state make their selections independently and accurately.
Accessible voting machines create a simple, private voting experience for people of all ages, including those with: low vision, blindness, deafness, hard of hearing, low vision and hearing, low literacy, no literacy, physical disabilities, wheelchair users, hand tremors, short stature, mouth stick users, head stick users, limited strength, and limited mobility.
Voters in Apache, Coconino, Gila, Greenlee, LaPaz, Mohave, Navajo, Pima, Pinal, Santa Cruz, Yavapai and Yuma counties will have access to Premier TSX voting machines.
Voters in Cochise and Graham counties can use ES&S Auto- MARK voting machines. Voters in Maricopa County can vote using Sequoia Edge II devices.
