tabulations given to the Scout late Thursday
night. The results as given for publication and
declared to be unofficial, showed that 6,799
votes were cast in the race for sheriff. u
While there were many flurries of excite"
ment reported throughout the day and night
Tuesday, there were no serious disorders report
ed at balloting places in the county.
Ballot Count In
A dispute over absentee ballots
in the general election in Gra
ham county Tuesday has resulted
in a delay in the counting of the
No figures on the county or
other races in Graham county
were available today, but political
observers said the contests were
close and that the decision con
cerning the absentee ballots will
probably decide the election.
The county board of elections
is scheduled to meet in Robbins
ville today to tabulate the re
turns. The absentee ballots total
about CO. A large number of these
were sent to Graham county by
citizens of the county who are
now in the armed services.
Because of the controversy over
the absentee ballots, election re
turns have not been reported ex
cept in a few precincts, it was
stated. It was also said that the
dispute over the absentee ballots
concerns the proper interpreta
tion of the state statute govern
ing absentee ballots.
To Senate By
Voters in the mountain area of
the state gave U. S. Senator
Josiah W. Bailey, of Raleigh,
Democratic candidate to succeed
himself, a big majority over his
Republican opponent, Sam J.
Morris, of Raleigh, on the basis
of incomplete returns.
Western North Carolina also
gave substantial majorities in
favor of the two state constitu
tional amendment proposals, in
complete returns showed. One is
to abolish five existing state
school agencies and place control
of the state's public school sys
tem under a single 15 -member
board. The other Is to permit the
General assembly to redistrict the
judicial districts of the state
without necessarily making them
conform to the solicitorial dis
tricts. There was considerable
discussion of the state school
amendment, but. little concerning
the judicial districts proposal.
