COUNTY COMMISSIONER REPUBLICAN ML Pol d ewA. Com. Trtw. ODD with a WlllflER!: so (C) 1MK Nn York Tl mm Nnn Service NEW YORK An army of 125,000 citizens working temporarily as press reporters will collect, tabulate, tally and distribute through a sophisticated computer system, the vote in all 50 states of the United States in today's national and state elections. The organization, NEWS election service, was set up in 1964 to serve as a vote count pool for all the mass media, newspapers, radio and television stations. Sponsors of the service are the Associated Press and United Press International, newspaper, radio and television news services; and the network television and radio news organizations of the American Broadcasting Co., Columbia Broadcasting System and the National Broadcasting Co. NEWS election service is the sole source of early up-to-the-minute returns in all elections of national interest. The service was organized in 1964 to produce a single, accurate set of returns. It offers no analysis or interpreta- tion; this is left to its news service and broadcast stations. Its aim is to produce the fastest count possible, consistent with accuracy. The emphasis is on accuracy. Many safety checks are built into its reporting and tabulating system to prevent reporting, tabulating and distributing errors. From precincts and from county headquarters votes will go to computers at seven regional collector centers, in New York, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. Manning the centers are about 3,000 people recruited by the task force division of the Statistical Tabulating Corp., an independent data processing company. From the regional centers results are fed to a pair of sophisticated computer systems in New York. At the system's heart is the precinct reporter perhaps a number of a civic group, a church worker, a teacher, a local business man or a polling place official. The national center, the regional centers and local tabulation centers are hooked into the news services' teletype grids covering the country. rati nan going m think if to for adiange? ooo I!
