NEW YORK shaped up as

mer Georgia governor 41 im-
portant electoral votes, but the
White House asked state offic-
ials to impound the ballots and
voting. machines in the . state.
Presidential Press Secretary
Ron Nessen said a Republi-
can campaign worker in this'
state informed a senior presi-
dential aide that he had reason
to believe it was important to
take "steps to ensure the se-
curity of the ballots."
The impounding of machines
is not unusual in close elec-
tions.
With 86 per centiof the state's
precincts reporting, Carter had
won in New York 51-49, with
a popular vote margin of near-
ly 100,000 votes.
THE OTHER states in Car-
ter's victory column were a
roster of the South, save for
Virginia. Only there did Ford
crack his rival's solid Southern
support. To that base, Carter
-added New York, Pennsylvania,
border states and Democratic'
bastions of the northeast. He
was also leading in California,
50-49.
Carter win five of the ten
biggest states. Ford woni one,
New Jersey, with the other four
undecided.l
Ford, elsewhere, was strong-!
est in the farm belt and thej
west.
HERE ARE how some of
the state-by-state vote totals
were shaping up:
In Illinois, with 73 per- cent
of the precincts tallied, Carter
had a bare 50-49 lead, with 1,-
649,340 votes to Ford's 1,638,1
820.
Ford was leading in Ohio, 50-
49, with 1,718,299 'votes. Carter
had slightly less than 1.7 mil-
lion.

There was no immediate re-

New York, but if the early pro-
jections hold, Carter could win
even without the state's votes.

one victory in this region of his
rival.
Carter's biggest single prize
was New York, where Ford had
held a -shaky lead in the early
counting. There, the Democrat'
captured 41 electoral votes; in
Texas, he won another 26. He
won also in Massachusetts, for
14, and in Florida, for 17. That
gave him four of the 10 biggest'
states where, by the arithmetic

Democratic National Chair-
man Robert Strauss said the
pattern looked like a Carter
victory to him. Carter flew to
Atlanta, planning a victory rally,
his speech of triumph already

But the outcome of the
tion hinged on late returns

were

thus, by his election night analy-
sis, Ford had to sweep the other
states.
An Associated Press survey of
voters taken outside 100 polling
places across the nation showed
Ford and Carter drawing on the
traditional bases of Republican
and Democratic support. Carter
was taking 85 per cent of the
black vote, 59 per cent of the
labor vote. Ford was gaining 58
per cent of the ballots cast by
college graduates, 67 per cent
of the voters with incomes over'
$20,000 a year.
Here are how some of the
state-by-state vote totals were
shaping up:
Ford was holding a wavering
lead over Carter in Virginia, a
pivotal southern state, with a
10,000-vote margin after 90 per
cent of the returns were in.
In New Hampshire, the Presi-
dent inched ahead of Carter by
a 52-47 per cent margin, after a
third of the state's precincts had
been counted.
Alabama, predictably, gaveE
Carter a good margin of victory,
winning with more than 100,000
votes after 65 per cent of the
votes had been tabulated.
Carter carried South Carolina
by a 57-43 margin, putting that
state back in the Democratic
column for the first time in
16 years.Hepiled up a 70,000
vote edge over Ford with 63
per cent of the precincts count-
ed.
Ford voted in an elementary
school in his old Michigan con-
gressional district, then flew
back to Washington and the
WhiteIHouse after an emotional
farewell to Grand Rapids.
At the unveiling of an airport
mural depicting his career,
Ford wept, and in a cracking,
campaign-hoarsened voice, told
his neighbors that he owes ev-
erything he is "to my mother
and father."
In Plains, Carter got three
hours' sleep on election eve,
spent five minutes marking his
ballot, dnd said he'd voted for
"Walter Mondale and his run-
ning mate."
Outside the cinder block poll-
ing place, close by the railroad
tracks, Carter said he was sat-
isfied with the campaign he
waged. "I did the best I could,"
he said.
Then he went down to his
peanut warehouse to look things
over and inspect the books.
In Afton, Minn., Sen. Walter
Mondale said he had voted "for
Jimmy Carter and his running
mate." He waited in line to
cast his ballot, and said "I'm
so tired I don't know what I'm
doing."

lead.
The all pointed to the Uni-
versity's finances as the major
issue of the campaign: Each
has posed plans to help the
University obtain additional
funding, most likely from the
federal government.
IN ONE OF the most import-
ant of the state contests, ten
candidates vied for three seats.
For the eight-year term in-
cumbent Thomas G. Kavanagh
beat Democrat Roman Gribbs,
Libertarian Wilson Hurd, Re-
publican Joseph Swallow, and
American Independent James
Wells. The two-year term was
won by James Ryan who beat
Democrat Charles Kaufman.
The third seat for a six-year
term was a dead heat between
Republican Lawrence Lindemer

Ocean.

and Democrat James Moody.
Human Rights candidate Zol-
ton ,Ferency was a poor third.
ALTHOUGH THE race is sup-
posed to be non-partisan, can-
didates must be nominated by
a political party, except for in-
cumbents ho can nominate
themselves.
The Democrats, at their State
Convention in August rejected
bids by Ferency and Kavanagh
for nomination for the two- and
eight-year terms respectively,
apparently for their failure to
follow the Democratic Party
line.
Ferency has angered many
Democrats over the years for
his radical political positions
and for bolting the party to run
for Governor on the HRP ticket
two years ago.
KAVANAGH, an incumbent
justice, voted against the Demo-
cratic majority on the court on
a reappprtionment plan which
was promoted by the Demo-
crats - losing their favor and
re-nomination as well.
In place of these two the Dem-
ocrats nominated Kaufman and
Gribbs respectively. Gribbs is
a former mayor of Detroit,

while Kaufman is a 12-year vet-
eran of the Wayne county Cir-
cuit court.
Upon being denied nomina-
tion by the Democrats, Kava-
nagh nominated himself and
Ferency accepted the HRP nom-
ination for the six-year term.
Ferency is running against
Moody who describes himself as
"a shade left of center on most
matters but on ,uman rights
a "liberal." The other candidate,
Lindemer was appointed to the
court in 1975 is a former Uni-
versity Regent and a conserva-
tive.
Kaufman's opponents, for the
two-year term, Ryan, a moder-
ate who was also appointed last
year.
Swallow, a circuit court judge,
charged the court with "gen-
erating a disrespect to law" by
overturning lower court rulings
on technicalities. The two candi-
dates nominated by minor par-
ties, Wells and Hurd, both ad-
mitted frort the start that they
had little chance of winning.
Their campaigns were almost
invisible and it took Hurd's par-
ty headquarters a month to dis-
cover he had even been nom-
inated.

WITH 60 PER CENT of the
precincts reporting at press
time, Minick held a rather safe
37,296 to 25,450 margin over in-
cumbent Postill.
Steeh, assistant head prose-
cutor of Genesee County, said
last night, "I feel we were able
to raise issues in the campaign
that people were not aware of
before we went underway. We
raised the consciousness of the
people."
He accused Delhey of at-
tempting to "misstate my ex-
perience and my stands on the
issues", and called the incum-
bent "unable to effectively deal
with the caseload of the office."
DELHEY CLAIMED that his
campaign did not have "near
as miuch money (as Steeh's)-
he bad considerable funds and
I didn't."
Although Steeh clitg to a
narrow lead at press time, sev-
eral rural Republican regions
had not yet reported their re-
turns, and the tallies were far
from decisive.
Incumbent Democrats Cath-
erine McClarv and Kathleen
Fojtik retained their seats for
county commissioners in the
14th and 15th districts with re-
sounding victories over their
two closest opponents. With 109
precincts reporting, Fojtik held
a convincing 3,205 to 1,058 lead
over Republican Robert Jones
while McClary led Republican
Robert Brandenburg 4,054 to
1,160.
In a non-partisan judgeship
race, Henry Conlin appeared to
have defeated'Burgoyne for the
22nd Circuit's newly created
Fifth Court seat. Burgoyne had
come under attack by the Wash-
tenaw County Bar Association
in recent years with charges
that she is "non-qualified" to
be judge.

Voters also appeared to have
rejected two county ballot pro-
posals for increased taxes for
repairs on roads, -bridges and
county buildings.
Two other proposals, which
increased taxes for acquiring

and extending the county boun-

The parks proposal had been

pected.'
PURSELL had been leading
almost all night as Wayne
County precincts - predomi-
nantly Pursell territory - re-1
ported in and it was not until
the Washtenaw County votes
weredtallied that the margin
eroded. Still, the state senator
assumed the countenance of a
winner:
"I think Ed was just a little
too far to the left but he had;
a better start in the campaign,"
he said. "However, I did well
in the debates and people
thought I'd be the most effec-
tive."
The photo finish for this con-'

test is a fitting climax for a
campaign which was nip - and-
tuck to the very end due to the
heterogeneous nature of the bat-
tle ground. It consisted of ur-I
ban and rural districts, blue
and white collar constituents
and the most densely student-j
populited sector in the state.-
Pursell campaigned on the
standard Republican platform,
espousing the need for a bal-
anced budget and 7a strong de-
fense while Pierce played up his
med al background in strong-
ly, advocating the need for na-
tional health insurance, and
proposed substantial cuts in the
defense budget.
"I THOUGHT my opponent
did not really discuss the real

issues," Pierce complained last
night. "I was disappointed with
the general tone of the cam-
paign. I think he knew I was
ahead and I think he was just
criticizing me without putting
forward his stance on the is-
sues."
Late last night, a spokesman
at Pierce's headquarters pre-
dicted that the race was so
close "Whoever wins will take
it with a margin of less than
1,000 votes."
Meanwhile, at Pierce head-
quarters, the doctor-turned-pol-
itician dismissed suggestions
that he was running on Car-
ter's coat tails, saying, "Well,
I'm running ahead of Carter.
I hope he'll do better, though."
