Presidential Election Tally Document Sold

The U.S. presidential election of 1936, between Franklin D. Roosevelt and Governor Alf Landon, took place during the depths of the Great Depression. Roosevelt won by a landslide with nearly 61% of the popular vote and 98.49% of the electoral college vote, the highest percentage of electoral college votes received since the 1820 election. Roosevelt’s victory meant more policies and programs from the New Deal could propagate and continue to improve the economy.

FDR Presidential Election Document 1937

1936 Presidential Election Tally Document certifying the reelection, in a landslide, of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Vice President John N. Garner signed by Garner, House Speaker Bankhead, and 59 Senators including Harry S. Truman. Single page document dated January 1937 records the results tabulated for the 1936 Presidential Election. All 48 states are listed alphabetically, with columns for the number of each state’s electoral votes, the names of the presidential and vice presidential candidates, and the number of electoral votes received by each. Bearing four watermarks of the Seal of the United States, it is identical in design to the one in the National Archives. However, that tally bears only the signatures of the two tellers of the Senate and the two tellers of the House. A collector obtained the signatures of the Vice President and the Speaker and 57 members of the Senate next to their states, including future President Harry S. Truman, Vice President Alben W. Barkley, and future Supreme Court Justice Hugo L. Black as well as Senators Joseph T. Robinson, H.C. Lodge, Jr., Hattie W. Caraway, W.G. McAdoo, James J. Davis, G.W. Norris, Wm. E. Borah, Pat McCarran, Harry F. Byrd, Theodore Francis Green, and 44 others. Document measures 11.5″ x 27″. Light staining and perimeter edge wear. Horizontal folds with the central one professionally reinforced on verso. This truly remarkable museum quality document is the only electoral vote certification ever to be publicly offered for sale and probably the only such document for any U.S. election in private hands. Sold for $9,000.
