People seem to do everything with their iPads these days, and now some people in Oregon will be allowed to vote with the Apple tablet.
Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown has distributed iPads statewide to help out Oregon voters with special needs
After a successful pilot program last fall, the state has decided to move full steam ahead on with the iPad vote project.
State leaders said voting with the device is easier for counties to monitor and cheaper than previous voting machines.
"Nearly 200 Oregonians used the iPad to mark their ballots during the pilot," Brown said. "We can do better. I am proud to expand the availability of this technology statewide to serve all Oregonians who may have accessibility needs. My goal is to make the ballot more accessible to all eligible Oregonians."
Using federal dollars, the elections division has provided an iPad to each of Oregon's 36 counties for use in the May Primary.
Tomorrow election workers, along with representatives from Portland State University, University of Washington and Intel, will show off the system at an assisted living facility in Beaverton.
