Storyboard Text

  • White primary elections were held, but it was later ruled unconstitutional because it went against the 14th amendment. When it ended black were bale to vote.
  • only whites!
  • Welcome, Eugene, as our new governor! For the 1946 election!
  • Eugene Talmadge
  • But before he got to serve his fourth term he passed away. But nobody knew who would take his place.
  • We gather here for our governor of four terms, Eugene Talmadge.
  • Georgia's General Assembly wanted H.T. to be governor so they brought him into office with no election. The other two claimants weren't happy with that decision so they fought for a fair election.
  • I vote Herman T. because he was Eugene's son and that would make sense.
  • There was a fair election held for the place as governor. There was Ellis Arnall, the outgoing governor, Melvin Thompson, the lieutenant governor-elect, and Herman Talmadge, Eugene's son all running in this election.
  • Arnall
  • Talmadge
  • Thompson
  • M.E. Thompson ended up being appointed governor because he was the lieutenant governor-elect. They found Talmage's write in votes, and Arnall just stayed until the controversy was over.
  • Thank you for electing me as governor!
