HAVA (Help America Vote Act)

HAVA was signed into law by President George W. Bush in October of 2002. The HAVA state planning process requires each state to explain how it will comply with a new set of Federal Election Requirements.

In Franklin County one of the ways we are in compliance is by using the AutoMark.
The AutoMark is a ballot marking device designed to provide privacy and accessibility to voters who are blind, vision-impaired, or have a disability or condition that would make it difficult or impossible to mark a ballot.
