Innovative! Oregon Using iPads For Disabled Voters

oregon using ipads for disabled voters

iSmart!

In a special primary election taking place in Oregon to find a replacement for U.S. Rep. David Wu, who resigned as a result of a sex scandal, disabled voters are using iPads to cast their ballots!

Basically, voters will tap the screen on the iPad to pick a candidate, and then they'll send the ballot to a portable printer. From there, they'll put the ballot in an envelope and send it in.

Here's what 75-year-old Oregon voter Lewis Crews, who suffers from sever arthritis, had to say about it:

"It's a lot simpler for me. I think it's a great setup they got…Now that I've seen how it works I'm confident I can do it on my own."

We think this is wonderful! And from what we're hearing, if all goes well, it sounds like this could become a widespread trend in Oregon, and inevitably across the country!

What do U think? Should we start trusting iPads in the U.S. voting process???

    Re: buck – Haven't you ever heard of an absentee ballot? This is just another way to generate one. Absentee ballots have been around for quite sometime.

    Re: Kamcy1 – I definitely heard of absentee ballots. Like all democrats proposals they come up with a wonderful social agenda but they really have bad intentions. the absentee ballot actually allow the votes of illegal aliens, convicts, dogs, dead dogs, dead people, mental incompitant people as well as the ability for people to vote numerous times all to count. Way to go democrats, beat the system!!!

    Buck - you are ridiculous. If that were in any way true Bush wouldn't have miraculously been elected. Twice.

    Re: DL1599 – If you weren't watching closely then you wouldn't know the democrats tried all of those tactics as well as voter intimidation, ballot stuffing, somehow losing ballots in republican districts and even had the liberal media try to call states for the democrats thus trying to reduce voter turn out. It just shows you how truely conservative this country really is. Ridiculous games played by liberals but i guess the end justifies the means for them.

    Re: buck – … except that Oregon does ballots by mail only. Nice try though.
