Very interesting question. If there were vision impaired persons
options this time, how did they deal with the huge numbers of
candidates? My guess: vote above the line. Does that disenfranchise
them from full and equal participation?
If it worked, though, and there was a found way to deal with it, what
was it? Might be able to learn from them.

Agreed. It's one of those elements of the other thread about who
should be involved in making decisions about IT that affect the populace.

Sooner or later, I hate to break it to you, you're gonna die, so how
do you fill in the space between here and there? It's yours. Seize your space.
