Boston, February 21, 1898. 

HoK. JosiAH QuiNcy, 

Mayor of the City of Boston : 

Sir : In compliance with the requirements of sect. 22, 
chap. 3 of the Revised Orclmances, the Board of Election 
Commissioners respectfully submits its annual report for the 
year 1897. 

The work of this department during the past year has 
been carried on along the lines previously established with 
very gratifying results. 

The State election, occurring in what is known as an off- 
year, was not attended with as much political excitement as 
usual, and the vote cast, therefore, was correspondingly small. 
The different candidates for governor received nearly 20,000 
less votes than were cast for the same officers in the year 
1896. 

The city election, however, was one of unusual activity, 
and brought out the largest vote ever cast at a municipal 
election in Boston. 

The voting list for this election was the largest ever pub- 
lished in this city, containing the names of 102,473 voters, 
exceeding any previous year by nearly 6,000 names. 

The voting list for the year 1897 was made up in the same 
manner as the new general list made during the year 1896. 
It contained, besides the name and residence of the voter, 
additional information tending to identify the voter. This 
form, although more expensive than the old style of alpha- 
betical arrangement with merely the names and residences, 
was deemed to be so great an improvement over the former 
system that legislative authority was granted to the Board to 
continue this system, by chap. 296 of the Acts of 1897. 



2 City Document No. 11. 

The laws governing the conduct of caucuses and elections 
still remain in a confused and unsatisfactory condition, not- 
withstanding the many efforts that have been made from time 
to time to simplify and consolidate them into one comprehen- 
sive act. 

The Secretary of the Commonwealth, acting under a re- 
solve passed by the Legislature of 1896, directing him to 
prepare a codification of all the statutes relating to the man- 
ner of holding and conducting elections and caucuses, made 
a careful study of the whole question and submitted a report 
which contained a uniform and harmonious codification of all 
the laws now in force relating to registration, and to the 
manner of holding caucuses and elections, and embodied 
therein certain recommendations of particular importance re- 
lating to the same subject. This report was submitted to 
the Legislature in the form of a bill which it was hoped and 
expected would receive favorable consideration from the Legis- 
lature of 1896, but for certain reasons, perhaps the strongest 
one being that this bill was not submitted for the consider- 
ation of the Legislature until nearly the close of the session, 
the whole matter was referred to the Legislature of this 
year. We are gratified to learn that thus early in the ses- 
sion this bill has been taken from the files and referred to 
the Committee on Election Laws, which is some indication 
that the subject is finally to receive the consideration that its 
importance demands. 

Caucuses and Elections. 

During the year there were held seven caucuses and two 
elections. We are pleased to report that the caucuses were 
conducted in an orderly manner and the returns were made 
with greater promptness and accuracy than heretofore. We 
believe this to be due somewhat to the law passed by the last 
Legislature allowing a voter desiring to vote for an entire 
delegation to make a cross in a circle at the head of a dele- 
gation instead of marking each name, we believe this change 
in the law has worked in the main to the advantage of the 
voter. 



Election Department. . 3 

The conduct of elections, in general, has been extremely 
gratifying. The officers performed their duties impartially 
and faithfully, and in general with a degree of intelligence 
which is very satisfactory ; but as we observed last year in 
our report, much remams to be done in the matter of making 
the official returns. We do not mean by this that the re- 
turns are not made honestly according to the count, but the 
statute which directs the making of official returns is very 
technical. It requires that the returns shall be made in a 
particular manner, and, in our opinion, the direction of the 
statute in this respect should not be departed from, and we 
have endeavored, by a system of oral and written instruc- 
tions, given to the election officers, to have them understand 
the importance of complying with the statutes in this particu- 
lar, but notwithstanding all our efforts in this direction much 
remains to be desired. We are somewhat at a loss to know 
what remedy to suggest for this defect, unless it is as we 
stated in our report last year that more time be given to us 
for the appointment and instruction of election officers. 

W& think that the appointment of the large number of 
deputy election officers, now required by law, is entirely un- 
necessary and the expense attendant upon this requirement of 
law is hardly justified by the duties that the deputies perform. 
They are simply required to appear at the opening of the 
polls in order that they may fill vacancies, if any exist, in 
the places of the regular officers. In practice, however, we 
find that hardly two per cent, of all the deputies are called 
upon to serve. More than this, the statute already provides 
that in the case of a vacancy existing among any of the 
election officers at the opening of the polls, nominations may 
be made from the floor and the vacancy filled by a vote of 
those present before the polls are opened. A saving of 
$3,500 could be made by an amendment to the law in this 
respect. 

We would again request the various political committees 
to exercise further care in preparing nomination papers for 
candidates to be placed upon the official ballot for caucuses, 
and particularly that the alterations and additions made 
necessary by withdrawals or otherwise should be plainly and 
correctly made. 

We realize the responsibility that is placed upon us when 
we are called upon to print the ballots for caucuses, and 
we desire that the committees may assist us as far as pos- 
sible, so that the danger of mistakes may be reduced to 
a minimum. 



City Document No. 11. 



Recounts. 



The petitions for recounts of votes cast at caucuses and 
elections increase greatly from year to year, and the criti- 
cisms contained in our report of last year, of the great abuse 
of the right to petition for recounts, is strengthened by the 
experience of the year just passed. 

Over 200 petitions for recounts were presented and acted 
upon, and, except in a few instances, the result of the recounts 
generally indicated that the petitions were wholly unnecessary. 
In many cases those directly interested in the result of the 
recounts, although seasonably notified, were not sufficiently 
interested in the matter to appear and be present during the 
progress of the count. Our inference from this fact is that 
m the cases last referred to the recounts were asked, for some 
other reason than for the purpose of ascertaining whether the 
ballots were properly counted as cast. We desire to state in 
this connection that it is imperative that some more com- 
modious quarters should be furnished this department in 
which to conduct the recounts. The law provides that each 
individual whose interests may be affected by the result of the 
recount shall have the right to be present and witness the 
conduct of the same, and in many instances, if the parties 
interested did not waive their right to be present and agree 
upon some one individual to represent them, it would have 
been simply impossible with our present accommodations to 
have performed this duty. Particularly was this true at the 
recount conducted by this department after the last city elec- 
tion. The representatives of the various candidates whose 
votes are being counted, or the candidates themselves, natu- 
rally desire to observe everything connected with the proceed- 
ings, and unless they can do this they naturally feel some 
degree of dissatisfaction. It is apparent, therefore, that with 
more commodious quarters this work could be performed 
more expeditiously, and certainly more satisfactorily to all 
parties concerned. 

This work is, perhaps, the most delicate that the commis- 
sioners are called upon to perform, and yet our ccmveniences 
for doing it are more inadequate to the demands and the 
nature of the work than for the performance of any other part 
of our official duties. 

Ballot Law Commission. 

Acting as the Ballot Law Commissioners of the City of 
Boston, we were called upon to hear and determine but one case 
durmg the past year. The ground upon which this com- 



Election Department. 5 

plaint was made was the alleged illegality of the conduct of 
a caucus held in Ward 6. The specific illegality upon which 
the complainants relied being, that the caucus was closed be- 
fore 8.30 o'clock P.M. in violation of the statute. It 
appeared in evidence that the caucus was closed at about 
8.05 P.M., and the cause of closing at that hour was that 
the ballots which were provided by the Board of Election 
Commissioners, upon requisition of the City Committee, 
were exhausted, and that there was no furtlier business to 
be transacted. 

It appeared also that the requisition for ballots which was 
made seemed to be amply abundant for the use of the caucus, 
and that the committee, in making their requisition, exercised 
reasonably good judgment and acted in perfect good faith. 
It was decided that this informality, under the circumstances 
did not invalidate the caucus, and the names of the candir 
dates selected at that caucus were placed upon the official 
ballot. One other complaint w^as made but was withdrawn 
by the complainants at the time set for the hearing. 

In connection with this subject we desire to say that some 
embarrassment results to this department, and to the public 
generally, from the laws as they now stand with regard to the 
filing of nomination papers for the nomination of candidates 
to be placed upon the official ballot at the city election. The 
law requires that nomination papers for this purpose must first 
be submitted seasonably to the Election Commissioners that 
the names may be certified before the papers are regularly 
filed. The embarrassment arises from the construction of 
this word "seasonably." In the case of nominations for state 
officers this embarrassment is avoided, because the certifying 
officers and the officer with whom the papers must be regu- 
larly filed are distinct individuals, the certifying officers being 
the Board of Election Commissioners, and the officer with 
wdiom the papers must be filed being the Secretary of the 
Commonwealth. But in the case of city officers the certi- 
fying officers and the officers with whom the papers must be 
filed are the same individuals, and on account of this dual 
capacity many of the candidates who have to do with this de- 
partment in connection with the filing of independent nomi- 
nation papers do not make the distinction between the sub- 
mission for certification and the filing of the papers after they 
are certified. They do not understand that there is a dis- 
tinct act of submission for certification to be performed be- 
fore the papers can be filed with this Board. 

We suggest, therefore, if possible, that some line of 
demarcation be made so that the statute would plainly indi- 



6 City Document No. 11. 

cate that there are two things to be done hy the prospective 
candidate before his papers can be regularly filed with the 
commissioners. Perhaps if the word " seasonably " Avere 
striken from the statute, and the words " twenty-four hours 
before the time for filing " be substituted therefor this em- 
barrassment might be ayoided. 

Complaints for Illegal Registration. 

During the month of December, immediately prior to the 
city election, 523 complaints for illegal registration, under 
the provisions of sects. 54 and 55, chap. 417 of the Acts of 
1893, were submitted to this department. These com- 
plaints were filed seven days before election and the commis- 
sioners, as required by law, inquired into the nature of the 
complaints, and in 415 cases issued summonses to the parties 
named therein ; in 108 cases the commissioners deemed the 
evidence insufficient and declined to issue summonses. The 
matter of the complaints was heard at times and places 
fixed, and 236 respondents appeared before the commis- 
sioners. Of these 236 respondents who appeared, the com- 
plamts against 210 were dismissed ; a small number were 
sustained, and in about 20 other cases the names of the 
voters were transferred to other locations. One hundred 
and eighty individuals to whom summonses had been issued 
failed to appear, and under the law their names were stricken 
from the list. 

The statute under which these complaints were made, pro- 
vides that they shall be filed with this department seven 
days, at least, before an election, and further provides that 
the commissioners shall inquire into the nature of the com- 
plaints, and, if they deem the evidence sufficient, they shall 
issue a summons to the voter against whom the complaint is 
made, and this summons must be served upon the voter in 
person, or by leaving a copy of the same at his last and usual 
place of abode, not more than fourteen days and not less than 
twenty-four hours before the day named for the hearing. It 
will be readily seen, therefore, that when a large number of 
complaints are filed only seven days before an election it is 
somewhat difficult to first inquire into the matter of the com- 
plaints and afterward to cause a summons to be served and 
then to give the voter a hearing, if he responds to the sum- 
mons. In no instance in the cases above referred to was there 
an opportunity to give the respondents longer notice than the 
minimum allowed by law, and in many cases, where the re- 
spondents appeared, it transpired that they had as a matter 



Election Department. 7 

of fact received no summons, but notice had been brought to 
them through the public press that their names had been, or 
were about to be, stricken from the list because they were 
illegally registered. The difficulty, therefore, in the practical 
operation of this law when a large number of complaints are 
filed such a short time before an election is, that it may work 
serious injustice to citizens whose names are pro]3erly on the 
voting list, but who have not received proper notice of the 
complaints pending agamst them. There seems to be no 
good reason why the time for filing these complaints should 
not be extended to at least fourteen days. Registration in the 
city of Boston closes twenty days before the election, and 
during the progress of registration the public are kept con- 
stantly informed through the press of the names and resi- 
dences of those who have been added to the voting list, so 
that any public-spirited citizen who desires to prevent illegal 
registration, or to expose it if such a thing occurs, may have 
ample opportunity to inspect the lists from time to time as 
they appear, and after the close of registration, there would 
be six entire days to further investigate and be prepared to 
furnish any evidence that might be necessary to have such 
cases brought before the proper authorities. 

We would suggest, therefore, that the time for filing com- 
plaints and the time for serving notices upon respondents be 
extended, and that the respondents, when they appear before 
this Board, shall be confronted with the witnesses upon whose 
evidence the complaint is based. 

And that no name shall be stricken from the list for the 
non-appearance of a respondent until after evidence tending 
to establish the illegality of the registration shall have been 
submitted at the hearing, and that the Election Commission- 
ers be given power to summons and compel the attendance of 
witnesses, and that some provision be made for the compen- 
sation of witnesses who may be summoned in support of the 
complaints. 

Election Booths and Polling Places. 

In our last annual report we expressed an opinion that it 
was desirable that this department should be equipped with 
a full number of voting booths for the 191 precincts in the 
city. 

Heretofore, we have by courtesy of the School Board used 
for election purposes seventy-five or more school-houses. 
During the past year, however, the School Board have served 
notice upon us that hereafter we must provide ourselves with 



8 City Document No. 11. 

other places in which to hold our elections. Their reasons 
for this action seem to he entirely reasonahle. 

The holding of elections interferes seriously with the dis- 
cipline of the schools, and in many places we were obliged to 
enter the buildings and to remove the furniture, and to trans- 
form the school-room for the time being into a polling place, 
and even where Ave were enabled to use the basement of the 
schools for election purposes the school buildings for that 
day were closed to the scholars. We shall therefore be 
obliged to provide the public with a sufficient number of 
pollmg booths to take the place of the school-houses that 
have thus been withdrawn from our use, and with this end in 
view we have asked this year for an appropriation for the 
purchase of 100 iron polling booths, samples of which were 
used at the last municipal election, and which seemed to be 
sufficiently adapted for use as election places. 

We have now available fifty-nine booths, including the 
three iron ones which we had constructed as samples, and 
twenty-five wardrooms. We consider that the purchase of 
these booths will be in the end a substantial saving to the 
city because we estimate, taking into account a proper 
amount for depreciation, interest on the investment and the 
expense of handling and storing these buildings, that the 
expense each year will be very much less than if we chose 
the alternative of hiring stores and other, available places in 
which to hold our elections. 

Expenses. 

At the beginning of the year the Board estimated that the 
expenses of the department for the year 1897 would amount 
to 1132,000, but the City Council appropriated for our pur- 
poses the sum of |120,000. 

As a matter of fact, the expenses of the department 
amounted for the year 1897 to 1137,632.68. It should be 
borne in mind that while the expenses of the department are 
practically fixed charges, yet the expenses for each year in 
each branch of the work increase with the growth of the 
city, and that it costs more in all branches of our depart- 
ment to register 102,000 voters than to register 5,000 or 
10,000 less. Every name added to the list increases the ex- 
pense of the department. This suggestion may in some de- 
gree explain the increased cost of running the department 
from year to year. 

The expenditures of the department for the financial year 
ending January 31, 1898, are as follows :
