An examination is made of the right of persons with sensory disabilities in Australia to vote and to serve on juries. This right is enshrined in article 29 of the United Nations Convention on the rights of Persons with Disabilities. The use of electronic voting in Australia is discussed with particular reference to the new I-Vote system in the State of New South Wales. It is also argued that persons who are blind or deaf should also have the right to serve on juries.
