Palm Beach County Voting Machine Commemorative Package. #42 of 540

Controversy surrounding the 2000 elections due to Hanging Chads.

"In the 2000 United States presidential election, many Florida votes used Votomatic-style punched card ballots where incompletely punched holes resulted in partially punched chads: either a "hanging chad", where one or more corners were still attached, or a "fat chad" or "pregnant chad", where all corners were still attached, but an indentation appears to have been made.

These votes were not counted by the tabulating machines. The aftermath of the controversy (see Bush v. Gore) caused the rapid discontinuance of punch card ballots in the United States.

The following historical items are included in the Palm Beach County Voting Machine Commemorative Package:
1. An authentic Palm Beach County Votomatic Voting Machine used in the 2000 Presidential Election on November 7, 2000.
2. A brass plaque on the Votomatic Voting Machine signifying that it is an official voting machine from Palm Beach County.
3. Certificate of Authenticity, signed by Theresa LePore, Palm Beach County. Supervisor of Elections, verifying that the Votomatic Voting Machine was actually used in the 2000 Presidential Election on November 7, 2000.
4. Legs for the Votomatic Voting Machine, which will allow the machine to be set up and displayed.
5. Votomatic Voting Machine Stylus, the instrument used by voters to punch their selection.
6. The "butterfly ballot" used in the 2000 Presidential Election on November 7,2000.
7. Twenty-five unused punch cards that can be inserted into the Votomatic Voting Machine.
8. Chads which are in the machine from previous elections.
9. Signed photograph of the Canvassing Board: Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, Theresa LePore, Palm Beach County Commissioner Carol Robert and Judge Charles Burton.
10. Certificate of Authenticity.

A true piece of history.
