VOTER NOTICE In compliance with federal Voting System Standards, the voting machine will notify you if you have not touched the screen for 2 minutes. If the machine appears inactive for 2 consecutive minutes, a special screen will appear. If this screen appears, simply touch "Resume" at the bottom of the screen to return to your ballot. You will return to where you left off. Your selections to that point will not be lost. If you do not touch "Resume" within 30 seconds of the message, your voter card will eject and you will need to see an election worker to begin voting again. Election workers are trained to assist you if this occurs.Okay, so I thought again, how stupid is this?
- Timeout is unnecessary
- It would be easily reached; both the long ballot initiatives are on the same screen, not to mention 20 judges at a time - Low vision users and the elderly can take minutes to read this sort of stuff
- It's electronic; how many of those using it (especially those low-vision elderly ones) don't know how to react to a timeout diaglogue?
- This little piece of paper is of no use at all. Dense text, no graphics, no actions quickly outlined. Better, not only is there no warning on the machine (I mean, taped to it, since they cannot fix the software) I had to finagle this out of the voting center; they wanted to take it back to use again, immediately after I read it.
- I cannot believe this is a legal or regulatory requirement, which it says right there. I've always heard it can't be changed in time, etc. but now they are covering their asses by lying about why it's there. Nice.
