The Machinery of Democracy

I am trying this summer to analyze the e-voting issue in the States and I found several interesting sites. I was told that the Smithsonian Museum had an electoral exhibition with all the machines used in the electoral USA's history, but there is also a great virtual site:

Please try the flash interactive overview and you will find detailed pictures of these machines.

hi josep

did you check roy g. saltman's great book on the history and politics of voting technology?

in my eyes the best book on that issue in the US ... and Roy wrote in 1978 (!) about problems that came up in 2000!

all the best,
robert
