4. My mother, who is still an active Inspector of Elections, does not want to vote absentee.

She does not want to give her Inspector position up, and so she wants to vote in her own polling place where she is working on election day.

She could vote privately and independently on a paper ballot (including an opscan paper ballot) at the poll, but (as I said in the article) from her wheelchair she cannot reach the touchscreen of the so-called accessible DRE our county purchased under HAVA. She has to be an assisted voter which as an Inspector of Elections she finds very embarrassing.
