Automark Accessible Voting Machine Now Available at the Guam Election Commission August 10, 2018 By Guam CEDDERS Guam Election Commision staff provided information to a participant during the 24th Annual GSAT Assistive Technology Conference on March 2, 2018 at the Westin Resort Guam. The Automark is a ballot marking device that provides autonomy to voters who are blind, visually impaired, or have a disability or condition that makes it difficult to traditionally mark a ballot. The voting machine was obtained by the Guam Election Commission in 2016 and has since made the device available for voters with disabilities to cast their votes independently. Voters who wish to use the AutoMark may do so during the In-Office Absentee voting period for the Primary Election from July 26, 2018 through August 24, 2018 from Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For the General Election, the In-Office Absentee voting period runs from October 8, 2018 through November 5, 2018 Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Voters will need to bring their government-issued photo ID to vote. For more information, individuals can contact Guam Election Commission at 477-9791.
