    Background: The two candidates for the Governorship of New York, Averil Harriman and Nelson Rockefeller -- two multi-millionaire politicians,---are seen recording their votes.

    In New York there is an automatic voting machine. The elector enters the booth, pulls the curtain behind him and makes his vote on the board. The result is computed by the device.

    The victor was Rockefeller, who it is thought had a majority of about 1/2 million.
