Voting on iPads

There was a NY Times story yesterday on how Oregon is considering using iPads to facilitate voting by individuals with disabilities.   The idea is that the voter votes on the iPad — the tablet is typically taken to the voter with disabilities at their home, nursing home, etc. by election workers — and the ballot is then printed on a portable printer.  The ballot can then be mailed in or is dropped off at the election office.  The program allows voters with various disabilities — blindness, low motor skills, language barriers, and the like — to vote.  It also overcomes the transportation barriers that many voters with disabilities face in casting ballots.
