So what did you do Elizabeth? Did you vote with sighted help. By all means
please compact the Supervisor of Elections office.
My experience went quite well. I had the key pad upside down but as soon as I
got it reversed things went smoothly.
The state ID card readers seem to have trouble reading the barcode but that
wasn’t much of an issue.
It sure feels good to be able to vote without sighed assistance.

You may want to speak to Susie Caplowe. She’s the person in that office who has
been promoting accessible voting machines since 2008. She is genuinely
interested in wanting to know wat’s going on.
This is just one more example of why we need to get to know the folks who
handle voting at our individual polling places and offer to do some training
for them before elections.

If anyone is planning to vote at the Emanuel Baptist church, 2351 Mahan Drive,
the talking portion of the voting machine does not work. I went there happily
expecting to vote like I did last time, and SURPRIZE!
I will be calling the Supervisor of elections office tomorrow.
