The machine still has all its original labels including the presidential candidates Franklin D. Roosevelt / Harry S. Truman and Thomas E. Dewey / John W. Bricker. It also has the candidates Lawrence Rupp running against James Davis for Louisiana governor and seven other categories of candidates. It also has 5 questions for 1944 Louisiana voters to decide on including; “Shall a speed limit of 30 miles per hour be approved for Automobile traffic? “ and “Shall peddling be allowed in the public streets?”.

The machine is in original and excellent condition. Labeled as Automatic Voting Machine Corp. Jamestown N.Y. Instructional model No. 18349. A museum piece.
