Aids for people who are blind or visually impaired

  • Tactile guiding strips on the floor so you can find the way to the registration desk and the voting booth.
  • A voting template (ballot marking device) and soundbox in the voting booth. You place the voting template on the ballot. You move your fingers over the template to feel the list. You use a soundbox with headphones to hear the parties and candidates on the list. By feeling and counting, you can find the candidate you want to vote for. You can colour in the correct circle on the ballot through the holes in the template.
  • Water bowls for guide dogs.
