Letter to the Editor Dear Stoney: Please allow me a bit of your fine newspaper to share some thoughts and information with your readers in the form of an open forum letter. When Mayor Beck and Town Clerk Arch \V<x>d selected certain citizens of our town to serve on the 19C1 election board it was the foremost thought in the minds of those of us who consented to serve that the election be carried on in very strict accord with existing laws and precedents and that the certain irregularities and erroneous advice of the 1959 election be avoided. PRIOR TO SERVING on the board, I conferred in Des Moines at the Capitol with the Honorable Kvan Hultmnn, Attorney General of Iowa, and one of his a sistants, in regard to election procedures and voting rights. I also picked up the attorney general's opinions since 1U3J1 to help the board in its work come election day. It was our further purpose not to have our town publicized around the state as a place where irregularity or prejudice might exist in the selection of public officials. Prior to the opening of the polls on Nov. 7th the election hoard had on hand the laws of the stale, the annotations to the Con titution and the Code of Iowa nnd the necessary opinions of the Attorney General. Armed with these guides the polls were opened and election day pass eel without incident in Fayette in 1901. THE BOARD WAS made up of Mrs. Hod (Esther) Johnson. Mrs. Tom (Margaret) Henry, Mr. S. K. (Chub) Campbell, Mrs. Harry Randall and myself. When questions cnmc up the members consulted the law nnd everything was decid i'd by unanimous agreement of the board during the entire election. When the polls closed the count ing procedure began and after every 25 votes the entire board reviewed its figures to ascertain that everything was correct. Newspapers, radio and TV stations called throughout the evening, but the counting was not completed until well after 2:00 a. m. The five members of the board served for nineteen straight hours in doing their duty. When a local citizen would call for information they were treated courteously and we flopped our work to offer tin- information we hail. 1 Ix'lieve Hint any taxpayer has this right to have this information. Probably the main p-tipose of this lett'T is to advisi 1 at U-ast fif teen people in Fayette as t;i how to mark ballots. You may use only an "x". Ho other nvirks m ty lie made on the ballot unless a name is being written in. The board was distressed to have to deny eighteen people their choices because they ivsfd a check mark or circled a !,<|ii»iv after voting. Incidentally, of the spoiled ballots, eight were for Mr. Fay nnd st-vvn were for M". Heck so the outcome would mil be rhimgcd by any recount. This was entirely nn acri- dent .in I the board did not dis rnvi tliir. cuiiic'idoiicv until the rnunting was over. 'I lie other three spoiled Ivi'lots mafic- no cnoice for mayo. 1 . THEKE WAS NO .un nn the polls by Upper Iowa students and any one wishing to vote whose residence may have been doubted by the board was presented with the oath nnd the penalties pertinent thereto. The bo.vd required two peo- I>V to l,'il«> tiv o.'iUi iin.l denied two others the ballot because they hail not lived here long enough to meet the law's residence requirements. Going on 3:on n. m., a lired and exhausted election board, its work dine in strict accordance with the law, adjourned itself, the ballots oiwtU d, .sealed find locked. 1 certainly extend my personal appreciation and thanks to Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Henry, Mrs. Randall and Mr. Campbell for the wonderful and conscientious work they did for the people of Fayette. I think the town and the candidates ought to be grateful for the splendid and efficient manner in whirh this year's election was conducted. Cordially, Don Kimball Fayette.
