I I -- Help Protect Small Counties of Georgia! -- Prevent Political Domination by Big Cities!* -- Break Up Political Machines at County Line! -- Keep Control of Georgia in Hands of Georgians! BE SURE! Fi Often at election time, we get all stirred up over persons run- ning for office. Next Tuesday, we have the opportunity and duty to vote for something that is bigger and mare important to Clinch County anfl Georgia than any candidate for any office. The people of Georgia are to vote on whether ar not to extend the COUNTY-UNIT SYSTEM to the General Election. NOTHING NEW. For many years Georgians:have been elect- ing their state officials under the County Unit System in their Democratic Party Primaries, which is equivalent to electjon. In recent years, growing concentrations of people in big cities have resulted in more and more huge "block voting." Threats are being heard that these multitudes of block voters in the big cities are going to use the General Election to overcome the primary elec- tion, elect their big city candidate, and thus destroy the influ- ence of small counties in our state government. PROTECTING SMALL COUNTIES. The little counties have a real voice in saying who is elected in the Primary election, be- cause the County Unit System tends to equalize the influence and voting power between little and large counties. Thus, neither can successfully dominate the state government through the use of overwhelming vote power. Contrary to what County Unit opponents say, the County Unit System does not give domination to little counties because, as we all know, some of them vote one way and some theother way. It does, however, discourage radi- cals from running for high office and organizing block-voting, political machines in big cities for use in state races. Because of all this, some of our REAL Georgia leaders have proposed to extend the County Unit System to the General Election. This will close the door to radicals and outside influences which would try to dominate the state government by stirring up these masses of city voters. If the 'County Unit System is good enough for the Primary election, then it should be good enough for the General Election. Why all the agitation in Atlanta against iL? Who is behind it? " the eight big city counties have only 6 unit votes each. When a candidate carries a county, he gets all its unit votes. In this way, and nly in thLis way' a rural cunty can effectively express its political will and influence. Had you rather have the "bi city method" all other states have? WE WILL KEEP IT---BUT!

Hon .rville, Georgia Tl:.cker's Service Staticm Carl's Serv:ce Station THE MOST DEMOCRATIC METHOD. If you will sit down and think it out, you will find that Georgia has the most demo- cratic method of electing state officials of any state in the union. The County Unit System literally breaks up any organized ef- fort to control elections from big cities. In New York state, a can- didate MUST carry New York City to win, as it is almost impos- sible to get enough majority in the rest of the state to overcome the ta'emendous city vote. The same is true of Illinois and Chica- go, Pennsylvania and its cities, and other states. IN GEORGIA WE HAVE NO SUCH PROBLEM. The County Unit System makes the votes of a little county like Clinch very important to any candidate .running for office. He can win WITH OR WITHOUT the city vote. In Georgia, the little counties each have 2 Unit Votes, middle size counties 4 Unit Votes each, and
