United States USA Date:1940, November 5 Duration:1 min 15 sec Sound:Yes
Huge boards listing the 48 States and their respective voter demographics, are set up in a Republican headquarters during the 1940 U.S. National elections. Three men on ladders, update election information on the boards, as returns come in. A large poster of Wendell Wilkie is at one side of the boards and one of Charles McNary on the other. Newspaper and radio reporters, and Republican supporters fill the hall. It is late at night, and some tired campaign workers are seen sitting with feet outstretched on the floor at the back of the hall. Noise of conversation fills the room as people discuss the election returns being posted.
