Election Interest on State Ticket 56 Machines to Register Balloting Here Only One Cerro Gordo Office in Contest •With only one county office in contest, interest will center on the state ticket—particularly the republican governor nomination— as voters here go to the polls in the all state primary election Monday. The only contest on the county tickets is that of supervisor in the 1st district of Cerro Gordo county, in which A. C. Kluck and E. R. "Dick" Steinberg, incumbent, are seeking the republican nomination and Joe Fritz and Edward O'Donnell the democratic nomination. On the democratic ballot there are no names on the ticket for county auditor, treasurer, clerk, recorder, county attorney or coroner, all of which offices are now held by republicans running for re-election without opposition on the G. O. P. ticket. Contests in State Ticket On the state ticket, more than half the offices arc contests on the republican ballot. On the democratic ballot the only contest in the state office ticker is that between Guy M. Gillette and Ernest J. Seeman for the United States senator nomination. AVhile United States Senator George A. Wilson is opposed in his campaign for renomination by John N. Calhoun of Burlington, it is in the governor's race that most of the interest is centered in the primary election here. Changes of party affiliation have been made by part of the labor vote in order to register opposition to Gov. Robert D. Blue in his campaign for the republican nomination for re-election for the 3rd time as Iowa governor The campaign for the nomination of William S. Beardsley for governor on the G. O. P. ticket has been gaining in intensity as the primary election approaches. New voting registrations in Mason City totaled only 592 for the primaries. Pearl Kellogg, city clerk, reported. Included in this group are persons 21-years and older who are registering for the first time and voters who have moved to the city since their last registration. T h e registrations started March 16 and were very light up to the final day last Friday when 143 changes were recorded. Voters who did not change their registration or prospective new voters who did not register will have another chance next fall before the general elections in November. Using 56 Machines Balloting in Cerro Gordo county will be on 56 voting machines which have again been placed in the 30 precinct voting places throughout the county. In most precincts one machine takes care of the voting, while in the 1st precinct of the 2nd ward at the courthouse, 5 machines are necessary to handle the long line of voters. The polls will open at 7 a. in. in Mason City and at 8 a. m. in all other precincts in the county. Polling places close at 8, at which time tabulation of votes takes place. The polling places in Mason City are: First precinct, first ward— School administration building, 120 East State. Second precinct, first ward— Waterwork, 1205 Elm Drive.

Thest machines will be in use in all *—• —— of the 30 precincts of the county. Auditor Raw has just entered the voting booth, as any voter will after declaring his or her party. He has grasped the operating lever and is about to move it to the right. This closes the curtain around the voter and at the same time releases the lock on the voting levers. The next step is to turn the voting lever down over the name of each candidate of the voter choice. These levers must be lef down or the vote is not registered In event the voter wishes to chang his choice he may do so by return ing any of the small levers to th unvoted position and then tur down another in its stead. Afte completing the job of voting, th voter turns the operating leve back to the left, which opens the curtain and automatically registers the vote. Harry Decker Dies; Rites Set Monday Harry H.
