Welcome to the AccessBallot webform (still under development)

This application is still a bit rough around the edges but if you're willing to use it in an actual election; I'm willing to dedicate the time to help you create a 100% compliant ballot.

The purpose of this form is to allow users to easily create ballots. This software is Open Source and the ballots it produces are free. The paper ballots can be optionally used with OMR machines and produces ballots that comply with multiple governmental election standards, Tablets can be used for touch screen voting, and the web based ballots are HTML5 compatible and can be accessed via most browsers and web enabled devices.

Simply fill out the form and click the "Generate Ballot PDF" button at the bottom of the page to generate your ballot.

This same form will soon be able to generate touch screen and web based ballots.

Also; the AccessBallot application has an XML based API that will allow any application to plug into the ballot generating software and generate ballots directly.

Notice: This is the alpha release of the Access Ballot Web Form and is still under development and in testing. For further information please feel free to contact Stephen Akins.
