ELECTION NOTES.

  • See the note in the Tribune Almanac: "This table exhibits the votes of the first named elector on the Lincoln, Douglas, Breckinridge, and Bell tickets; but in a number of towns a fusion ticket, made up of two names from each of the anti-Lincoln tickets, was voted, and as these votes were counted for the first elector on each of the three tickets, the above table does not exhibit the true strength of the parties. With the proper deductions, the opposition to Mr. Lincoln will foot as follows: Douglas, 15,522; Breckinridge, 14,641; Bell, 1,485; Fusion, 1,852. Total, 33,500."
