Leaders Urging Voters Cast
"Yes" On State School
Everything is in readiness for
the election on Tuesday, when the
voters can pick their own time of
casting their ballot from sun-up
Gudger Bryson, chairman, and
John R. Hipps and Virge McClure,
members of the county election
board have been busy the past
several days oiling up the ma
chinery for the election.
Mr. Bryson stated that be felt
there would be an unusually large
number of absentee votes cast in
the election on Tuesday. He was
also of the opinion that aa many
citizens as possibly could, would
return to the county to cast their
votes. ' ' :;y
While leaders are not expecting
the large vote of other years, due
to the fact that there are so many
men in the service and others out
of the county on defense Jobs, but
they are counting on the support
of every voter in the county.
"As chairman of the Haywood
County Democratic Executive com
mittee, I am expecting the usual
Democratic majority on next Tues
day , said C. E. Brown.
"Since there are so many of on
voters out of the county in th
armed forces of the nation and in
various defense-efforts, there will
be a reduced vote, but I am confi
dent that the Democratic party
poll its usual majority inpro portion
to the votes which will be east,"
continued Mr. Brown in discussing
the vote.. .
, "I consider it the patriotic duty
of every citizen to register his
voice at the polls; the right to
vote and to express a free and
untrammeled opinion about the
aflairs of the government is wbV
thousands ot free people the world
ovef are fighting and" dying for
at this very momen. We certainly
should realize the true value of 7
these rights and exercise every
democratic right available to us as
free people," said Mr. Brown. ,
