No. 95. Supplementary Federal Election Law
June 10, 1872

A BILL making appropriations for sundry civil expenses was reported in the House, May 9, 1872, by Garfield of Ohio, and passed on the 23d. June 7, in the Senate, William P. Kellogg of Louisiana submitted an amendment altering and extending the act of February 28, 1871 [No. 91], relative to the right of citizens to vote. The proposition gave rise to heated discussion, the amendment being objected to not only as a "rider," but also as an attempt to engraft upon the bill an election bill then before the House. The bill with amendments passed the Senate, after an all-night session, by a vote of 32 to 10, 32 not voting. The report of a conference committee was accepted by the House on the 8th, by a vote of 102 to 79, 59 not voting, and by the Senate on the 10th by a vote of 39 to 17. All laws relating to supervisors of elections, special deputy marshals, etc., were repealed by an act of February 8, 1894.
