This machine is a voting booth. It is a butterfly
voting machine. Remember the infamous “CHADS” that were the center
of the Florida voting controversy? Look closely around the edge of the booths
case and you may see some CHADS.
“CHADS” are the leftovers of butterfly ballots after they have been punched and made ready to be machine counted.
In 1998, voters in Oregon passed a statewide ballot
measure requiring that all elections be done by mail.
This machine is from the State of Washington, it was last used in 2004. Many individual counties in Washington are starting to move to the Vote By Mail model that Oregon started.
