ERRORS NUMEROUS
IN. VIRGINIA VOTING
Totals of Pollard and Brown Con
siderably Reduced in Seventh
Congressional District.
Special Dispatch to The Star,
i WINCHESTER, Va., November B.
: Hundreds of voters in the seventh con
gressional district made mistakes in
marking their ballots for governor in
Tuesday’s election, according to reports
i reaching here today from the various
t counties on both sides of the Blue Ridge
j Mountains, and as a result the vote
for both Pollard, the Democrat, and
' Brown, the Republican-Fusionist, was
i considerably reduced.
Election officials were quoted as say-
I ing the presence of four names on the
j ticket for governor had a tendency to
! confuse many people. In numerous in
: stances all four were marked out. In
‘ others cross-marks were made either
; before or after or in the center of cer
tain names, all of which invalidated
! that portion of the ticket.
In Shenandoah County, where Brown
i received 2.322 votes and Pollard 2.137,
f judges of election threw out 340 ballots
jas being improperly marked. Over 100
! such tickets were disregarded in Clarke
j County, nearly 100 in Winchester and
i more than 100 in Frederick County.
It was said that large numbers of bal-
I lots had to be cast aside also in Rock
; ingham, Albemarle. Green. Madison,
I Warren, Rappahannock and Page Coun-
I ties. The result, however, would not
I have been changed, according to elec
: tion officials, although the vote for one
I candidate or another would have been
j increased or lowered. Pollard’s vote In
I the district was approximately 13,263
| and for Brown 8,586.
