Wins half
of Jersey T
By The Associated Press
Sen. George McGovern
last night won Democratic
presidential primaries in
New Jersey, New Mexico
and South Dakota.
In New Jersey, Humphrey
forc s acknowledged McGovern
had won at least half of the
109 nominating votes decided
by yesterday's primary.
However, a tight race de-
veloped for the seven statewide
delegates, although a Humph-
rey spokesperson had conceded
the seven seats to McGovern
earlier in the evening.
The outcome of a number of
races for the remaining 102
delegates that were at stake in
county voting also remained in
doubt. McGovern spokespersons
said they hoped to win 80 dele-
gates.
Spokespersons for Humphrey
conceded that McGovern had
won at least 55 delegates.
McGovern won over the un-
expectedly strong showing of
Gov. George Wallace in the New
Mexico presidential primary.
Humphrey ran third there.
Wallace appeared to have
gained half that state's dele-
gates.
According to primary election
returns with 75 per cent of the
state's 1,125 precincts reporting,
McGovern won nine delegates.
Wallace also won nine conven-
tion delegates.
On the Republican side, Nix-
on picked up 13 convention
delegates. Rep. Paul McCloskey
(R-Calif.) won one delegate.
McCloskey, however, has with-
drawn from the presidential
primary race.
With 83 per cent of the 1,125
precincts reporting, McGovern
had 32 per cent, Wallace, 31 per
cent, Humphrey, 25 per cent,
S'n. Edmund Muskie (D-
Maine. five per cent, Sen.

Polls open
late; vote
tally stalls
rThe Associated Press
Sen. George McGovern of
South Dakota led Sen. Hu-
bert Humliphrey of Minne-
sota, his leading ri-val for
the Democratic presidential
nomination, in preliminary
returns from the California
presidential primary early
this morning.
Vote totals were inconclusive,
however, because of a three-
hour delay in closing San Fran-
cisco's polls.
With 10 per cent of the 22,647
precincts reporting at 2 this
morning, these were the vote
totals:
McGovern 174,325 - 53 per
cent
Humphrey 118,224 - 36 per
cent
W-Wallace 5,409 - 2 per
cent
OW: Write-in)
A judge had ordered the polls
held open three additional
hours in San Francisco and the
secretary of state then ordered
a halt to the counting of any
ballots until after the 11 p.m.
Pacific time closing.
But some votes were counted
before the order went out and
McGovern surged ahead of
Humphrey 52 per cent to 37 per
cent with 5 per cent of the vote
tallied. At that point, the count-
ing came to a virtual halt un-
til the poll closing.
An estimated six million of
the state's 9.1 million eligible
voters were expected to go to
the polls in a possible record.
President Nixon took a 9-1
lead over his only Republican
foe, Ohio Congressman John
Ashbrook, to collect the state's
96 dl-"ates to the GOP Na-
tiorat Convention.
The decision to keep the San
Francisco polls open was made
by U.S. District Judge George
Harris after voters stood in line
as long as three hours before
they could cast their votes.
His decision came after the
State Sureme Court turned
down an attorney's petition for
a later closing time.
The polls closed on time in the
57 other counties, but Secretary
of State Edmund Brown Jr., son
of the former governor, issued
an order that no votes could be
counted anywhere in the state
untithe tolls finally closed in
San Francisco
Brown disg seed wibthhe de-
cis-. to keep the 'oll open in
San Francisco.
"T think we oud have taken
crre of even 'e and stll closed
the polls rn time " he said.
A spckespersen fr Brown said
his decision was based on a state
la which, says that no votes
can be counted until all polling
places in California-there are
22,647 precincts-are closed.
San Francisco County has
1,349 precincts at 771 polling
places.
