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. In addition, it provides language assistance to voters who are more comfortable speaking an alternative language or who have reading difficulties. The AutoMark ballot marking device is also equipped for Sip-N-Puff and paddle devices to assist voters with hand dexterity challenges.

Any voter may use the AutoMark to vote, not just voters with a disability or in need of language assistance. Many individuals have disabilities that are not readily apparent and cannot be easily seen. Poll workers should not assume that a voter will or will not want to use the AutoMark, ask a voter what their disability is, or otherwise decide that the voter should or should not use the AutoMark. The decision to use the AutoMark is up to the voter.
