New Voting Machines for Fairfax County
Voters with disabilities can request to use the county’s new ExpressVote machines. The ExpressVote is fully compliant with the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and enables voters with special needs to use technology similar to touch screen equipment to generate a marked paper ballot. The ballot will then be inserted into the same optical scan machine used by other voters. The technology allows those with special needs to vote independently and privately.
