Interview with Geraldine Williams
QUESTION 9
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Do you remember the primary night in '67 when Stokes beat Locher? What, what were you doing? What, what, where were you that night?

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

Well, I was at headquarters.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay. And just--

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

--we had a bank of phones going because we had people at every polling place. And as soon as the vote was counted at the polling place, rather than wait for them to come down to the, uh, board of elections we'd have them call in the vote, because you see, after the vote is counted, tallied at the polling place, they paste, put it on the door. And our people would go up and get the tallies off the door and they would call it into headquarters. So we were a few minutes ahead of, uh, the count that was going in to the board of elections.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay.

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

And I was down there on, on the phones, helping man the phones.
