Wednesday 14th November 1917

It was a very fine day. Willie and Dave were working at their Kiln. The election of a County Councillor for this Riding took place to day. The Candidates were Alex Matheson & Bertie Witten. I was Deputy Returning Officer for Leigh so I had to be at the Hall from 9am until 6pm. The Polling here was follows.

Matheson 39
Witten 11
