From Teresa Hommel:
FYI, The AutoMark ballot marking machine has sip-and-puff (for voters with neck-down paralysis), but the Vote-PAD at this time does not.

NY State’s new Election Reform and Modernization Act requires sip-and-puff.

The AutoMark was modifed to comply with New York’s full face ballot requirement, and the new version was demonstrated in January 2006.

The Automark was federally certified with the ES&S optical scanner, which also was modified to comply with the full face ballot requirement, and shown in January 2006.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
