description:
This data collection contains general election aggregate returns for each of Michigan's 6,734 precincts and absentee voter counting boards for the November 7, 1972, general election. Included are votes cast for the national offices of president, United States senator, and United States representative, the state-level offices of Michigan state representative, superintendent of the State Board of Education, Supreme Court justice, and regents for the three major state universities, as well as returns for two statewide initiatives, two amendments to the state constitution, and a statewide referendum. A set of nested geographical codes (for wards, townships or cities, and counties, in addition to precincts) permit aggregation to several levels. Present also for each precinct is the type of voting method in operation in that precinct in 1972 (paper ballot, automatic voting machine, Shoup, and data card).
