1 A week before Scarlett and Rhett announced their engagement, an election for governor had been held.
2 The election had lasted three days instead of one.
3 Scarlett, with her usual disregard of all matters not directly under her nose, had scarcely known an election was being held.
4 Rhett had taken no part in the election and his relations with the Yankees were no different from what they had always been.
5 I'm working harder than I ever worked with a shovel in the gold rush, trying to help get the election organized.
6 It doesn't matter a damn to me who wins this election.
7 And when the election came, despite the frantic efforts of the Republicans, Georgia once more had a Democratic governor.
8 Now and then, the election was very close, and that was the time the poor man came in.
9 It gave them pleasure to believe this, for Scully stood as the people's man, and boasted of it boldly when election day came.
10 Also election day came round again, and Jurgis made half a week's wages out of that, all net profit.
11 It was a very close election that year, and the echoes of the battle reached even to Packingtown.
12 But I doubt if they had more meaning in them than an election cry, and I cannot suggest a darker picture of her state of mind.
13 The sixth day was fixed for the election of the marshal of the province.
14 They were to proceed immediately to the election.
15 The district marshals walked carrying plates, on which were balls, from their tables to the high table, and the election began.
