2. From the viewpoint of a disabled family member who voted absentee for years
(the last 3 decades) the issue of wanting the polling place to provide accessible machines never came up. Absentee ballots were the solution.

There was never any feeling of injustice with the absentee ballots. There was the feeling of being accommodated because special circumstances were required in order to vote absentee.

HAVA, in facilitating the widespread use of computerized "voting" systems, is to voting what Katrina and BP are to the Gulf Coast.
