Throng Expected Appearance of Senator Taft Here An Exceptional Event Write-in Blank On Slate Ballot Up lo Voters Specimen ballots for the April 8 primary, issued by Ihe office of County Clerk Eulalia Hot* at Edwardsville, do not have a readymade blank for write-ins under the GOP presidential column. Nor do the Democratic ballots. Gen. Ike Eisenhower, who scored an unprecedented write-in victory in the recent Minnesota primary, looms as a likely favorite in the Illinois primary—but he didn't give the word soon enough to permit his Illinois backers to get him on the ballot. The form of the ballot is up to the clerks of each county, with the only requirement being that "sufficient room" is left on the ballot to permit a write-in vote. T h e Madison county ballots do have sufficient room. To write-in a vote for Eisenhower, those who vole Ihe Republican ticket: in the Madison county primary must draw a square similar lo those before the names of the other candidates, place the square a I. the bottom of Ihe other presidential candidates' names and write in the full name "Dwight D. Eisenhower." Also an "X" must be placed in the square. The law leaves judgment of the "voter's intent" on a handwritten vole to the election judges. • Already locally there is some activity among GOP boosters to start an Eisenhower write-in campaign. The move awaits a decision from Eisenhower's stale headquarters. Registration Of Voters At All Time High What was described as a "terrific" number of voter registrations -•- either those who changed address or hy new voters - - has been reported by the office of County Clerk Eulalia Hotz at Edwards vi lie. There were more than 500 new registrations and about 2700 changes of address in the county, which included heavy registration in Alton. Most voters' cards will he sent out by March 24, according to Miss Hot*' office. The upturn in registrations came during special registration days marked by activity of special rogistars, in addition to the regular registrar. Office Swamped The great number of registrations has swamped the county clerk's office, where it was stated, "It: is quite a task determining the correct precinct for each of these persons and therefore the voters' identification cards will not. be sent until this work is completed — which will he in ample time prior lo Ihe primary April 8." March 10 was the first day set by law for civilian absentee voters to file formal application wilh the county clerk for an absentee ballot. In discussing regulations today. Clerk Hot/ stated that men and women in service are not required to 1)0 registered voters, but must be possessed of the other qualifications, that is, residence in the state one year, in the county 90 days, and in the election district 30 days, prior to their induction and must be over the age of 21. The law p'ermits relatives to apply to the county clerk for application for men and women in service who care to vole by absentee ballot. Absentee voter's applications are only obtainable at the county clerk's office. As soon as Ihe application is properly completed and notari/ed and received by the county clerk, an absentee ballot will be sent. Form For Request Request can be made by writing direct, lo the county clerk for ap- lication form; or any mother. fa- Conintiied on I'age 'i, Col, 2.
