November 16, 1978- Voting machine totals in the four precincts in the District 6 school board race were checked last week by interested parties in that election. From left are Donald Soileau, attorney for William “Bill” McBride, the apparent winner; McBride; Clyde Fontenot, attorney for Forrest “Jay” Fontenot Jr.; and Walter Lee, Clerk of Court. The machines in those four precincts were checked with registration books and absentee ballots inside of them. The absentee ballots are scheduled to be recounted today.
