Voting stand that was outlawed and made obsolete after the 2000 Presidential election. Playing an important role in the Bush/Gore 2000 election, the most controversial election in American history, this fascinating item is the ultimate conversation piece and keepsake from that dysfunctional voting process. Due to a computer glitch, 103,222 ballots went uncounted. From this grew the controversy over "butterfly" ballots, dimpled, pregnant and hanging "chads" which barred many votes from the process and caused many Floridians of Broward County to accidentally vote for the wrong candidate. ESL Vote Recorder ballot box is self-contained and folds up neatly into its silver briefcase outer shell (18x22x4.5"). Contains lighting device with power cord and aluminum legs. Fully assembled, stands 5 feet tall. "Property of Supervisor of Elections, Collier County, FL. [serial #] 00181" on location code plate by handle. Case opens to reveal an easily assembled stand which folds outward. Complete with attachable legs and power cord in the top compartment. COA from Director of Election Support of Collier County, who has released it for public sale.
