OLYMPIA: Voting machines for disabled available

Voting machines to help the disabled will be available at the Intercity Transit transfer station in downtown Olympia on Friday and Saturday.

The AutoMark machines allow a blind or visually impaired voter to hear the ballot options, then cast a vote in secret. They will be available from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday and from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Voters must bring their mail-in ballots to use the machines. For more information, call the Thurston County auditor’s elections office at 360-786-5408.
