I was there 2 weeks ago. It's pretty good. Not only 19th century
stuff, but an ES&S Votronic I (ancestor to the iVotronic) and a
Shouptronic. I've never seen one of those, nor a DataVote punched
card voting machine.

So, if you get to DC, go visit it. The web site for the exhibit
is also pretty good.
