Abstract. This paper presents a case study of the E2E voting system Punchscan and its first use in a binding election. The election was held in March 2007 at the University of Ottawa for several offices within the university's graduate student association. This case study presents a walkthrough of the election and offers discussion as to how the voters and poll workers responded to the Punchscan system, with implications to E2E systems in general.
