[visionrehabtherapist] Re: voting

It may be the law, but it does not always work. My county went with the touch 
screens. Yes, it has voice, but I have tried and just can not use them. I can 
use my iPhone, but not those voting machine screens. My husband still votes for 
me. I am quite angry over this, as our local NFB group went and tried out 
several models before they chose, and they chose the one that we could not use.
