    At every polling place in the United states there is a new voting machine for persons who have physical or learning disabilities that prevent them from marking a paper ballot independently.

    This is the first time that people with disabilities can go and vote on their own.  This is a result of the Help America Vote Act.

    The policticians and other public officials are watching these new machines to see if people with disabilities are using them.

    Its a great time to stand up and be counted.  The more people with disabilities who vote the more political power we will gain.

    So get out and vote!

    I am sure you didn't mean to say stand up and be counted!!In the uk postal voting has been around for quite a while now- surely that is available in the States. People go and vote how they like I cant see these new machines and ramps making much difference. But if they work I can see Britain following suit very quickly as only around 45% of the public bother.
