Rushmoor Borough Council also used new ballot-marking technology from ES&S and Unisys to provide privacy and accessibility to voters who are blind, vision-impaired, or have a disability or condition that would make it impossible for them to mark a ballot in the usual way.
The voter inserts their ballot card into the terminal and then touches the screen to scroll through the options and make their selection. Blind voters or those with severely impaired vision can choose to listen to the choices through headphones instead. The selection is then automatically printed onto the ballot paper.
