mandated by the Help America Vote Act, and replaced them with electronic touchscreen voting machines.

Elderly and Disabled Voting from the Curb
Any voter age 65 or older or physically disabled may vote from the curbside. They may request to vote from their vehicle and a voting machine will be brought to them by an officer of election. They will vote in the presence of the officer of election, but are given sufficient privacy. After the voter casts their vote, they return the machine to the officer of election, who will then return it to the polling place.
