I have some good readers who figured it out. You can tell from the names on the machine that this was from the Presidential Election of 1964. Barry Goldwater and Lyndon Johnson are the Presidential Candidates. Of course, history tells us that Johnson won the election. He carried the state where this machine was used.
When you look at the columns for Senator and Governor you find that the names of Hartke and Branigan among the choices. They were the winners of this election in Indiana. The picture does not go over far enough to show the local races, only the National and Statewide races are shown, so it is not possible to narrow it down further.
Here is a picture of the building where the old voting machine was on display when I took the picture.When Crawfordsville, Indiana built a new library they were able to repurposed their old Carnegie Library as a museum. It was one of several museums that I visited in Crawfordsville when I visited there. You may have seen my earlier post on Ben-Hur. The General Lew Wallace Study is also in Crawfordsville.
The Carnegie Library in Crawfordsville was the first Carnegie Library in Indiana and was opened in 1902 with 4,500 volumes. There were 1,679 libraries built in the U.S. with funds from Andrew Carnegie. I am sure that many of you have benefited from his generosity.
I have spent a long time researching for a future post this evening and am getting this posted just under the wire :-).
I hope you enjoy this additional information about where the voting machine is on display.
