Super~visor of Registration.
Inquiries have been received
at this office as to whether or
not applicants fo positions on the
Board of Registration will be
required to enter the campaign
this year and be nominated in
the primary election.
Last year an act was passed
by the legislature which relates
to Pickens County only, and
provides that the Board of Reg
istration be elected in the gen
-rat electio' of 1912 ar d every
Vo years thereafter. It. is left
entirely with those who want
posit:ons.ou this board as to
whether or not they will run in
the primary. However, it iF
thoig.ht by some that if thisJ
act was tested it would be held
unconstitutional for several rea
sons. It is also thought by some
that th - present board in this,
County who were appointed
this year will hold for two year.
