Notes / Description: 

Both Moore and Caldwell were candidates for County Judge in an August 1894 election. Caldwell received more votes than Moore. Moore argues that the ballots that were used for Caldwell were not valid and should not be counted. The ballots that are in question have been presented as evidence in this case. They were with the case in a separate bag. The bag and the said ballots are in their own folder in Box 595 and have been labeled as such. Case files are in multiple folders.
