1968 election chalkboard

Slate chalkboard used to monitor election returns from the presidential election held on November 5, 1968.   The left-most column lists each of the 50 states and Washington, D.C. The top row lists the candidates:  ”HHH” (Hubert H. Humphrey); “DICK” (Richard Nixon); and “GW” (George Wallace).  The returns listed are not the final election results.

For details, view the chalkboard in our online collections database.
