Ballot system for blind voters improved in New Hampshire
Sep. 08, 2018
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire polling places will feature a new system for blind and vision-impaired for Tuesday's primary elections.
The new system is called One4All and involves tablets that voters can use to enlarge the size of the lettering on the ballot. For blind voters, the software read through all the names, cuing them to hit the enter key when their choice is read.
Nancy Druke is vice president of program services for Future in Sight, formerly the New Hampshire Association for the Blind. She told the Concord Monitor that the biggest drawback is that the system prints out the voters' choices onto a paper that can't be read by the Accuvote ballot-counting machines used in most communities.
