German translation:vom Wahlautomaten erstellter [generierter] Papierstreifen [Ergebnisstreifen]
Explanation:
This is merely a suggestion; however, it might help to steer you in the right direction. The "hand-counted ballots" are a dead give-away: the lever machine strips are the strips produced by voting machines, indicating the results of an election. These machines were (are?) commonly used in US elections. The link listed below contains a rather detailed description of these machines, and maybe that'll help you find the answer you're looking for. I searched on "election machine" in Alta Vista which yielded a manageable number of hits, and "Pullthis.com" seemed to be the most promising among the sites listed. Good luck.
