Voting machines. Hosts Adrienne Lauby and Ruthanne Shpiner address
voting machines and discuss how the fundamental right for all citizens to
vote privately and independently applies to people with disabilities. Can
these rights be realized by the machines currently in use and have elections
be secure? Adrienne Lauby and Ruthanne Shpiner provide background plus
interview voting rights activist, Emily Levy and Contra Costa County
registrar of voters, Stephen Weir on the accessibility and the security of
the machines out there for use by the community. What are the implications
for people with disabilities? Can this fundamental right be guaranteed
them?
