ing tlio great American prerogative
of voting. ,
Tho various voting places won

for during tho morning. Election of
ficials estimated that from 15 to 20
percent of tho rogistered vote was
cast during the first half of the day.
Although a comparatively light
vote was cast durlns; the morning,
members of the various olcctio.i
boards who are veterans In tnat ca
nacltv oxnlained that the morning
voto always is light, regardless of
the issues to be passed upon. A3
evidence of proof, thoy pointed to

20 percent of tho registered vct:ra
cast their ballots during tha morn-
Ins of that day.
