Nell Irvin Painter – Voting

White Leaguers and obstreperous Democrats broke up Republican meetings, changed polling places at the last minute, pretended that the names of Republican voters were not on the registration lists, used three ballot boxes instead of one per poll, and stuffed ballot boxes to be absolutely sure that only “ultra” Democrats were elected. This last technique was known as “counting out”. Thanks to these illegal measures, Democratic nominees won the election, but the flagrant and widespread outages surrounding the contest triggered federal action.
