Heavy Vote
W
(By the Associated Press.)
North Carolinians marched under
clouded skies and in slight drizzling
rains to the ballot boxes today to rec
ord their vote for candidates for pub
lic offices.
Reports from over the State indi
cated a large, if not a record-breaking
vote, despite the lack of fair weather.
Nutbush precinct in Vance county,
with all registered voters accounted
for, made the first returns to be re
ceived in this State.
The vote in Greensboro was run
ning particularly heavy. Many of the
voting places there reported an aver
age of better than a ballot every min
ute up to noon. Drizzling rains were
falling. No disturbances were report
ed.
Wilmington reported indications of
a record vote there, despite cloudy
skies that bore a threat of rain.'
Voting in Raleigh appeared to be
varied. One precinct with a registra
tion of 900 voted 250 persons before
9:30 a. n>. while another with 1.500
registrations voted 100 the first hour.
Long lines of citizens swarmed at
voting places in Rocky Mount and by
10:30 a. m. approximately 1.500 per
sons had cast their ballots. Managers
expected an unusually heavy vote.
Governor O. Max Gardner said he
was told over long distance telephone
by Congressman Lindsay Warren at
Washington that reports indicated
“an enormously large vote in the first
congressional district."
The voting in Charlotte and Meck
lenburg county was so heavy that by
r.oon eighteen additional ballot boxes
had been sent to precincts reported
that the original boxes had been filled
to overflowing. Other precincts re
ported to officials they had im
provised boxes to take care of the
overflow.
