Interview with Geraldine Williams
QUESTION 17
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Okay, as the election drew nearer and Taft was rising in the polls, did you ever lose faith, did you ever believe that, that Stokes might not win?

GERALDINE WILLIAMS:

No, never did. They have complete confiden--we had worked so hard uh, we didn't see how he could lose. And if, if we had, if we could turn out 70 percent of our registered voters, we knew he'd win because we didn't think that the other side would turn out over 50 percent. Our mission then was to get as many registered voters as we could to the polls, and we did too, we got 78 percent of 'em out.
