Trauger COUNTY AUDITOR ALOONA (low*) AbVANCi-4 THURSDAY, AUG. 25, 1944 ..... ,,..,• -. -•- - ••— —« Sample ballot for September ' election given Presented on these two pages are the republican and democratic sample ballots for the election Sept. 6 for Kossuth voters. For the first time Kossuth voters will be using voting ma* chines and small levers will be the voting instrument instead of the pencil used on paper bal* lots. The voting machines are set individually for each voter in the primary. A republican voter can only vote in the republican row, and a democratic voter only in the democratic row. The democratic candidates for nomination are listed in the row from 1-A to 34-A, and republican candidates are from 1-C to 34-C. The second row of blanks (B and D) under each will not appear on the machines but appear here because they are shown on absent and disabled voters ballots, and are to be used only in case a voter wants to write in a candidate. On the machines a slot is provided over eacli of the numbers at the top of the machine. A write-in on the machine can be made by opening a slide over the name of the office for which the write-in is wanted. This exposes a paper roll on which the , name can be written. These slots are numbered for offices the same as in the list of offices as shown above the small levers. On the machines only the one row of candidates for each party will appear. In cases where there are more than one candidate they are listed one after another in the row. For U. S. senator there are four candidates for the democratic nomination. To vote a choice the lever over the name is pulled down. For instance a voter wishes to vote for say 2-A as listed on the machine. The set-up will appear like tnis with tfte lever in a horizontal position right over the name. Above the name is the number of that candidate's tally counter. To vote say for 2-A the voter pulls the right side of the lever down over the name under 2-A until it appears like this with the lever pointing •Lo and almost covering tae name. This will expose a little red X to show the vote for that number and candidate. Before voting a voter must move the large red lever on the front of the machine. This closes the curtain. To register the vote the little levers above the name MUST be leic down. When tiie big red lever is moved to tue leu it automatically registers 'the vote and automatically moves the levers up into the prior position. Thus the vote will not be visible to outsiders. This red lever also operates the curtain over the machine. When there is more than one candidate for an office, by pulling the lever for one, it will lock the levers for other candidates for that same office. Thus in the above example if 2-A lever is pulled it locks levers 1-A, 3-A and 4-A. Thus it is not possible to spoil a vote. Names of candidates are rotated by precincts. In this sample ballot the names are in alphabetical order where there is more than one candidate for the same office. The first precinct in the county appears this way — but in others the names will be in different sequence. For supervisor Kossuth voters will vote only in the First, or south Kossuth, and Third or east Kossuth districts. In other precincts these spaces will be blank and the levers locked out. This sample is for the First district only. This sample does not show township oli'ices of justice of the peace, constable, township trustee and township clerk. These however will appear on the machine. In this first use of machines Kossuth voters may be a bit confused, but in the experience over the state whore the machines have been in use for years the machine voting is preferred and easy. Election officials will be fully trained in the operation of the machines and mechanics of voting and will be happy to explain to voters how to vote. Auditor Marc Moore has been busy setting up the machines in the 35 Kossuth precincts. The machines permit almost instant results thus eliminating the tedious counting of paper ballots and the all-night waiting at the auditor's office for the results. vl
