Description:  In Greenville, N.C., before the era of quick electronic vote tabulations for election results,  people used to wait outside the Daily Reflector office and watch as vote tallies were posted and updated on the tally board.  This June 1964 photograph shows the vote tally being adjusted while citizens watch and wait for final tallies.
