The State of Oregon, USA, is trying out a voting with the iPad pilot program in five of its counties, as introduced by Sec Brown. This is intended to make voting more accessible to persons with disabilities.

Election workers in the targeted counties are vising parks, community centers and nursing homes to look for people who might find it difficult to fill out a paper ballot. These officials carry with them iPads and printers. The voters can use the iPad to pull up the ballot and cast their vote, which are then printed, and then given to the voters to sign and mail.

Sec Brown hopes that this will making voting easier for those in need.
