Description

Presented is an original voting machine manufactured by the Automatic Voting Machine Corporation in Jamestown, New York. The operational device (10″x 13″ – Instructional) compete with levers and voting directions was used in the 1972 Presidential election in Chicago. Incumbent Richard Nixon faced off against George McGovern. In this election, McGovern wanted an end to the Vietnam War and Nixon ran a pro-desegregation crusade in his campaign. Although Nixon won, he later resigned due to campaign antics which found his hands (staff) were sneaking candies (information) out of the Watergate dish (Hotel) in order to gain an advantage against the Democrats. The original paper slips are included with local election party members in their designated slot for Republican (party missing but lists Nixon – Carey) and Democrat (lists party and includes McGovern – (Roman) Pulinski – Leons). The Vice President running mates are not included on the list. All in all, collectors can “rock the vote”with this one.
