Vote Tallying Machine Shows Speed in Test BAKERSFIELD A newi electronic ballot tallying machine being tested in Tues day s election in kern- County gave promise of success as it flashed out its results on a screen in an old county garage building here. In less than an hour and a half the machine had totalled 64 precincts. Ballots were tallied at the rate of one precinct a minute, and the results punched into summary cards. The polls had not closed in the county until 8 p.m.. an hour lated than in other counties. Ballots then were sorted by election officials, principally because the machine can not tally write-in votes. The ballots then were filed for permanent recording and the results fed into a tape for totaling. The preparation for the machines' operation began 60 days ago, and crews from the Coleman Co. trained countv clerk deputies and precinct workers in the op-1 eration of their duty, the machines ran through three test runs before the big night. Among the interested spec tators Tuesday night. Secretarv of State and cities also watched the machine operate. Across the street at the county clerks office deputies counted ab sentee ballots by the old hand-counting method. Tulare County State Senate 35th District Howard Wav (R), 2,378: Jim Stein (D), 1,843.
