It would be interesting to see the no. of machine deactivations at each 
polling station but I don't think that information is available.

Undervote/overvote are more difficult to ascertain here because we have 
different classes of voters - ie. in 2004 Irish people could vote in the 
Referendum, EU citizens in the Euro-election and everyone could vote in 
the local elections. As far as I know, there is only a single class of 
voter in the US. There were reports at the time of people voting only in 
the referendum and not bothering about the elections.
