Great things about being blind. Accessible voting.

Yesterday, I voted in advance for our upcoming provincial election. I went to the station and they had an accessible voting machine there for me. They had to set it up first but once it was set up, it was wonderful. It talked me through the whole process, had large tactile buttons, confirmed my voting choice and then printed the ballot. It was absolutely wonderful and I could do it totally independently. How wonderful that is. It's about time.
