IALLQT PRINTED IN
Seme Counties Disregard Orders of
Conctkutional Convention for a
Callot in Pamphlet Form
Several counties are said to have
printed ballots for the special elec
tion September 21 in a form contrary
to the decree of the constitutional
convention. Secretary of State Ams
lerry has received a letter from the
county clerk of Saunders county ask
ing if it is unlaw ful to print the con
stitutional amendments in "string"
form instead of pamphlet form. The
secretary of state has replied that
such a ballot will not be illegal or
void. Others have grave doubts
about this for the reason that the
constitutional convention explicitly
states that the ballot shall be in
pamphlet form and the convention
has power to define the manner and
form in which amendments shall be
submitted to the voters.
It is said other counties besides
Saunders on one sheet of paper sim
ilar to the general election ballot.
The. constitutional convention re
ceived a report from a committee
which was not positive enough as to,
the form of the ballot to suit some!
members, and on motion of Evans of
-3 41 ,r .1 3 . 1. . '
Adams the convention ordered the
ballot to be printed in pamphlet form
with space- on the back for the en
dorsement of election officers. This
was the final action of the conven
tion, though the printed minutes
omit any mention of the vote on the
subject. It stops with the motion
on Evans' motion being put to the
convention by President Weaver.
While many voters prefer the long
form ballot, it was a pamphlet ballot
which the convention ordered used
at the special election. Lincoln
