The Polk County History Museum in Columbus gave visitors a unique opportunity this election year to vote for their favorite president of the past.

With a 1920s era wooden voting box used formerly in Polk County, visitors were asked to vote for their first and second choice past president. The ballet box was closed on Election Day at 1 p.m. so museum curator George Comparetto and wife, Judy, could tally the votes.
