Travis County's voting system meets the disability standards as prescribed by the Texas Secretary of State and Federal Help America Vote Act. These features allow voters to cast their votes privately, securely, and without assistance.
- The paper-based ExpressVote Universal Voting System uses touch-screen technology in a Ballot Marking Device (BMD) that produces a paper record for tabulation. As a BMD, the ExpressVote handles the entire marking process, eliminating marginal marks and the need for interpretation of the voter's mark.
- Voters who are visually impaired or blind may choose to use headphones to hear the ballot read aloud. The audio is recorded in both English and Spanish.
- Voters with limited dexterity or limited upper body mobility may vote by using the tactile input switches on the equipment. Sip-and-puff accessibility is also available.
- Our customized voting tables make all the voting machines wheelchair accessible.
- Voters with disabilities may request the option of "curbside voting." In this case, a poll worker brings a voting unit to the voter's vehicle.
