Who Can Actually Give the Assistance?

Any voter who needs assistance in voting by reason of blindness, disability, or inability to read or write may be given assistance by a person of the voter's choice. However, the person giving the assistance cannot be an officer or agent of the voter's employer or union.

If the voter who needs assistance does not specify a particular person to assist him/her in voting, then the voter can be assisted by two election judges, one from each political party.
