Non-English Speaking Voters

A citizen cannot be denied the right to vote because the citizen does not speak English. If a voter is challenged and can not answer the challenge questions because the challenged voter does not speak English, the challenged voter should be given a challenged ballot. The inability to answer the challenge questions because of lack of proficiency in English is not the same as refusing to answer the questions.

If a voter is challenged and is unable to answer the challenge questions, the inspectors should note on the challenge form that the questions could not be asked because of the challenged voter’s inability to speak English. The challenged voter is given a ballot that is marked with a serial number corresponding to the voter’s name on the voter list.

City of Neenah Voting Method

The City of Neenah uses a paper ballot, which is read by an Image Cast Evolution (ICE) Voting tabulator, which scans and stores votes. To cast your vote you must darken the oval next to your voting choice.
