DOIT IT WONT GET DONE Remember Tomorrav is report day Co Drake Hotel Room 209 Vigorito Loses Seat in Congress To Marc Marks Republican candidate Marc Lincoln Marks yesterday took the 24th Congressional District seat away from incumbent Democrat Joe Vigorito in an upset victory Vigorito conceded defeat as early as pm last night as he was defeated soundly in his home county of Erie Vigorito loses the seat after a vigorous campaign battle with Marc Marks who spent more than double what Vigorito did during the primary and general election campaigns Robert Hereford the American Party candidate received only a minimal percentage of the vote and did not figure in he outcome of the race Vigorito was seeking his seventh term in the district which includes Erie Crawford and Mercer counties Vigorito was first elected to office in 1964 but this year faced his toughest test against Marks In his previous campaigns the incumbent Democrat had defeated his opponents by wide margins until a close victory over Republican candidate Clem Scalzitti in 1974 Marks claimed from the start that it would be a tough cam paign and he proved successful in the outcome Vigorito said he was surprised very surprised that he lost the race He said be had not expected to lose yesterday Astounded A spokesman for the Democratic Committee in Erie County said he was astounded and amazed that the people of the 24th Congressional District have taken Vigorito out of office He said he just couldnt explain why Vigorito lost to Marks Vigorito was a member of the House Agriculture Committee the House Interior and Insular Committee and was chairman of the subcommittee on Domestic Marketing and Consumer Relations He also served on several other subcommittees in the House The congressmanelect in the district Marc L Marks is a Sharom attorney who ran for Congress for the first time Marks has been active in management of state and national campaigns and served as solicitor for Mercer County

partner in the Sharon law firm of Rogers Marks and Perfilio Reports indicated that Vigorito defeated Marks near his home in the industrial areas of Sharon Farrel and Sharpsville but Marks led in all three counties in the district As of late last night there was a reported 58 per cent of the vote in Of that percentage Marks had 65806 votes to Vigoritos 52174 a lead of more than 13000 votes for Marks Many Reasons Vigorito in a television in terview last night said I dont know what happened it was probably an accumulation of things The incumbent Democrat late last night was losing in Eric County by over 10000 votes In a victory statement Marks said he was both surprised and happy Marks said he was especially surprised at taking Erie County and said that the voters there liked his platform and decided it was time for a change that he would spend some time with his family and begin to get ready to take office in January 821 Pet Turnout In City At tout S21 per cet of TlUivlltei

Causes Confusion Here Election return workers yesterday at City Hall had their hands full with the new mailer registration voters According to reports last night it seems as though most of the persons who registered by mail did not know where to vote Many of them were coming to City Hall expecting to vote there because that is where they picked Johnson Trails In 23rd With IBS precincts reported late last night Republican incumbent Congressman Albert Johnson of the 23rd District was over 4000 votes behind his Democratic opposition Democrat Joseph Ammerman was ahead in at least four counties as the votes were being tallied A strong lead for Am merman was being predicted in Centre County but no official reports were in from that area Incumbent Johnson was ahead in three counties in the district which is comprised of Cameron County Centre County and portions of Clarion Clearfield Clinton Elk Forest McKean Potter Venango and Warren counties This is the way the race was shaping up in the late hours yesterday Warren County 28 of 43 precincts Ammerman8312 Johnson4818 Clearfield County 81 of precincts Ammerman8799 Johnson6534 Clarion County 10 of 34 precincts Ammerman 213 Johnson 341

It seems that the problem was that when the constituents received their cards in the mail there was no mention alluding to where that person was expected to cast his or her ballot Reportedly persons were coming in from Rome Township Oil Creek Township and other surrounding Crawford County townships expecting to vote in Titus ville Another problem was with city residents Many of those who registered by the new mailing system did not know what ward or district they were in One person living across from City Hall went to vote there and found that his residence is not in City Halls district which is the Second Ward First District Another problem cited was the late mail registrations Workers gave examples of several cases in which they did not have any record of the registrants They were forced to call Crawford County offices several times to determine if these people were actually eligible to vote City Hall was reportedly the only voting district in Titusville which had problems with the new mailer registrants City Vote Reported Titusville was the first municipality in the state last night to report the results of the balloting concerning the presidential preference
