E-voting in Santa Clara County, 2004 -- CS74N project

Ever wonder how a real election works? Students in the Stanford freshman seminar CS74N: Digital Dilemmas, Fall 2004, documented pre-election testing and polling place operations in Santa Clara County, which used the Sequoia AVC Edge touch-screen voting machines.

Here is a description, with photos, of our visit to the Santa Clara County Elections office warehouse before election day, where we saw the pre-election "Logic and Accuracy tests" of some of the machines.

Here is a description, also with photos, of setup of the machines and polling place operations on election day.
