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.
