During elections with a federal race on the ballot, a touch screen voting unit will be in each polling place and at the Regional Election Offices absentee voting locations 15 days prior to an election. Touch screen voting is intended for the blind, disabled and voters with reading difficulties.
Alaska's touch screen voting units allow disabled voters to vote unassisted through the use of a magnified, high contrast and audio ballot.
At the end of voting, a voter-verifiable paper ballot is produced by the touch screen unit. This paper print-out is secured behind a screen and allows the voter to verify the electronic ballot for accuracy.
If you need to vote using a touch screen unit, ask an election worker for this voting option.
