Counterfeit Ballots Printed

Record #:
Fake ballots were mailed to THE STATE's offices concerning the 1936 gubernatorial straw vote. The gubernatorial race was between four candidates Hoey, Graham, McDonald, McRae with Dr. McDonald holding a comfortable lead. THE STATE's Staff emailed these ballots in order to gauge how its readership would vote in the gubernatorial race. The fakes were quickly discovered because they were returned from counties in which THE STATE's ballots were not distributed.
