Registration closed yesterday, with
a total of 74,832 voters qualified to
take part in the primaries to be held
May 15. The books were opened Jan
uary 6 and have been open continuous
ly since that time.
- The closing yesterday was not ac
companied by any such rush as was
experienced at the registration room
Thursday, only 1560 registering, as
compared with 1951 on the previous
clay, but the drop of 400 in the day's
total does not indicate that the reg
istration room was not a busy scene.
From early yesterday morningr until the
doors were closed at 5 o'clock there
was a steady stream of voters filing
in and out.
Sufficient clerks were on hand to
wait on all with the least possible
delay, and though some few became
impatient before they had signed their
name on the last book, all appreciated
the rush and excitement and offered
The totals as given out last nigrht
may be changed slightly when the cards
have been checked over and properly
segregated, but it is believed that the
total of 74,832 lacks only a few of being-
correct. With the exception of the
few who may be sworn in on election
day, the registration total is approx
imately the total vote which can be
cast May 15. The total for the county
