RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - With Election Day just a few weeks away, there is now a new voting method for voters who are visually impaired.

Once requested, your ballot will be delivered by email and an automated voice will read the ballot questions aloud. After the voter has made their selections, they must print out the ballot and mail it in.

Anyone interested must select the “print disabled” option on an absentee ballot request form, which needs to be submitted by Oct. 22.

If you are visually impaired and prefer to vote in person, every precinct also has a keypad device available.
