Electors may receive assistance to vote from any person of their choice. Voters may also ask for assistance from a poll worker.
In compliance with the Help America Vote Act, a voter assistance terminal is available in every polling place in Idaho. A voter assistance terminal can assist voters to vote privately and independently, especially those voters that have difficulty seeing or marking a ballot.
Visually impaired voters can use headphones to listen to an audio ballot and make their vote selections on a touch screen or on a Braille keypad. A voter assistance terminal also has a zoom feature to enlarge the ballot print and also a contrast feature to make the ballot easier to read for some voters.
Voters can review and change their selections on a voter assistance terminal, just like any other voter, and voters may request a new ballot from a poll worker if they make a mistake. Votes are counted by the county Election Board in the same manner as all other ballots.
Operating instructions are available on this website and at the polls. Poll workers are trained to assist voters when asked for assistance. As it may take more time to vote using a voter assistance terminal, please follow the links below and review the operating instructions for your county’s voter assistance terminal before coming to the polls.
