Part of that has apparently already been done by the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

Thanks Sasha for the link. I started looking at the online exhibition and it's really informative. I agree that an understanding of the evolution of the voting process, practices and artifacts / tools (in the US and in other countries) might be very useful and inspiring.

Agreed, this is great for understanding the evolution history of voting, before we design new solutions.
