Description and Holding Information
Joint Comm. to Examine the Returns of Votes. Report, 1842
House No. 2 On January 7, 1842, a thirteen member Joint Committee examined the returned votes for Governor and Lieutenant Governor. Several
jurisdictions made errors on their forms, but the Committee was able to sort out most of them; the returns were only rejected from one town. The candidate
for Governor needed 55,532 votes to have a majority; John Davis had 55,974, so he won. The candidate for Lieutenant Governor needed the same number,
but no candidate achieved it. The Committee was directed to carefully investigate the returns of Lowell, which they did, and then felt able to add
Lowell's votes to George Hull's total. He then had 56,076, so he won the post. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Library of Congress).
Title:   Ordered, that Messrs. Washburn, Robinson, Wells, Champion, Rogers and Crowell, with such as the House may join, be a committee to examine the returns of votes for governor and for lieutenant governor.
