Note that Riverside County here in CA is currently in the middle of a
DRE-recount fiasco that appears to have taken the job of the RoV
(Michelle Townsend) with it. She had been denying the challengers
access to any records that could be used to recount the vote (as
sparse as they are with many DREs). I'm not sure what voting system
they have but a casual glance at SoS Kevin Shelley's page should
say... let me look:

Riverside used the Sequoia AVC Edge on March 2... this could be what
the initial poster (Hyde?) asked about. There *must* be more... like
the cases in New England where DREs were removed from polling places
and then returned in last November's or October's election.
