This Democratic Party ticket for judicial offices was used in an election in December 1867. Note the colors of the ticket and the clever slogan on the back. The hole made by the counting spindle used after voting closed to sort and count the tickets reveals the placement of the icon on the back of the ticket while confirming that this ticket was cast by a voter in that election.
