From snowflakes on the tip of your nose to delicious hot chocolate on your tongue, there is more to the holidays than sparkling lights and window displays.

The ability to vote using a secret ballot that can be marked privately and independently has long been a fundamental cornerstone of America’s democratic system. For centuries, blind voters were forced to rely on the help of election judges, trusted friends or relatives, or other human readers to mark their ballots. This deprived them of the right to a truly secret ballot.
