A few weeks ago, I was digging through some boxes won at an auction (but never inspected), and found four posters from Los Angeles that appear to have been hung at the voting location for this particular precinct (1342-A, which looks like it became 1443).
The posters list the eligible voters, their residence and political party affiliation. The first poster (from 1944) also states their occupation. They were too large to scan, thus I had to use the camera. Plus, the print is quite small, so it called for the macro lens.
In total, there were 1,400 names listed. But, as you can imagine, many repeat from one poster to the other. These were added to the Genealogy Today Subscription Data service, which allows anyone to search the name indexes.

Working today, and publishing some unique records, is my way of celebrating the economic and social contributions of our ancestors.
