Lot 0529 Details

Description
ILLINOIS POLLING RECORDS529. [1860 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION] Great archive from Abraham Lincoln's home state of Illinois, an 1860 Poll book and oversized tally sheets and documents detailing campaign results from DeWitt County, IL [5 pieces]. Present are two large poll sheets, approx 16"x27" with usual folds and minor separation, listing the "Names of Persons Voted For to be Electors of President and Vice President of the United States." Hash marks detail actual votes cast for a range of offices including the election of Richard Yates as governor. Also a partly printed poll book, 8½"x13", completed in manuscript, indicating that 174 citizens cast their votes. Docketed on front cover, it contains three blank pages. The results of these votes are summarized on same size separate sheet on both sides, being the "Abstract of Votes Given in the County of DeWitt and State of Illinois for Eleven Electors for President and Vice President of the United States..." Normal folds; partial fold separations with minimal paper loss. Very good condition. An unusual complete record of a single polling station highlighting the two major candidates who came from this single state: Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. Lincoln's political strength was confined to the populous Northern States, but he won a decisive victory in the Electoral College. However, he polled only about 40 percent of the popular vote. Douglas garnered an impressive popular vote, but barely made a showing in the electoral tally. These documents were part of an election that forever changed American history. COA Signature House. Est: $4000-6000
