News on this day in 1964 was all about the Presidential Election. The speculation, the controversy, the allegations, the pundits and very little else.
So for roughly a half hour, here is a slice of news from that day via CBS News. The Polls hadn't closed yet, or were in some cases and votes were dribbling in, not by the hundreds of thousands or even thousands but by the tens. Even early on there were allegations of vote tampering, accusations of rigging ballot boxes. And in the South, confusion since this was the first major election since the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed and many precincts in the South didn't know what to do about all the Poll Tax forms (they were rendered illegal).
All in all, an interesting November 3rd 1964 as reported by Walter Cronkite and company.
