Visually impaired voters in Denmark are unable to vote privately in national elections. Our study examined voting systems that could improve voter privacy for the visually impaired in Denmark. We also investigated different methods of voting that would allow the visually impaired to participate in elections within organizations. Through interviews with blind and sighted voters and with members of the Danish government, we determined which voting systems would be most acceptable for use in Denmark. Based on our findings, we concluded that the Danish Association of the Blind should push for the implementation of electronic voting machines that print paper ballots. We have also created a list of best practices for making organizational elections accessible to the visually impaired.
