The Electoral Commission (IEC), together with the South African National Council for the Blind (SANCB), has developed a voting aid, the Universal Ballot Template (UBT), to assist persons with disabilities and special needs to have an independent and secret vote during elections.
The UBT can be used by:
- Blind and partially-sighted people
- Low-vision users
- People who are dyslexic
- The elderly
- People with low literacy
- People with motor and nervous conditions which do not allow for a steady hand
