Voting machines. Hosts Adrienne Lauby and Ruthanne Shpiner address voting machines and discuss how the fundamental right for all citizens to vote privately and independently applies to people with disabilities. Can these rights be realized by the machines currently in use and have elections be secure? Adrienne Lauby and Ruthanne Shpiner provide background plus interview voting rights activist, Emily Levy and Contra Costa County registrar of voters, Stephen Weir on the accessibility and the security of the machines out there for use by the community. What are the implications for people with disabilities? Can this fundamental right be guaranteed them?
