Vincent- Thanks for this contribution. This is new tech to me and it interestingly tackles some core components. In general, I agree with Ramanand that we have a ways-to-go!

Cheers Meena - this should be fun. In the spirit of collaborative solution seeking, I asked a few Peruvian friends how the mandatory voting works in Peru for people with disabilities. I was as interested in their perceptions and whether or not they knew about the procedures as I was in the ultimate answer. Although they did not seem to be able to describe it clearly, it sounds like each person who might need assistance is able to be accompanied by someone else that can vote on their behalf. I like it for its simplicity but have a feeling we can do more to create as fully and truly a democratic process as possible.

Thanks Vincent. Re: your 2nd finding - it's true. Everyone Counts stresses a hardware agnostic approach but found that the iPad was the favorite with users (perhaps no surprise there). Again, as we head toward a solution that hopefully levels the playing field for all voters, I think that some economies of scale could be achieved that ultimately make the hardware more affordable.

Also, good to know about the remote effort too. Thanks for digging!
