Over the past several years, the city has equipped Edina polls with machines called AutoMARK ballot marking devices that make it easier for people with disabilities to vote independently and more privately than in the past.
If you need to use an AutoMARK because you have a disability, let the election judges know on election day. They will be happy to give you a demonstration.
More About the AutoMARKS
These special machines are better suited for people who have any type of disability that makes it difficult to mark a ballot. When using the machine, voters will have the option of listening to an audio version of the ballot through earphones or viewing the ballot on a screen that has options for reverse contrast and larger type. The audio description can be used alone or in conjunction with a screen version of the ballot. The vote will be recorded by touch screen, key pad or other adaptive method.
