Hi Kathy (and all),

I used the Verifier database (you've linked to it before) and clicked
on both states and then any "E-voting: other" or "E-voting: DRE"
counties.

However, you can download all the data behind the database into a
spreadsheet by clicking the "Download Map Data" link on any Verifier
web page... here's the link for that action on the whole USofA:
