Each voter could vote for up to three candidates. On Tuesday, June 13, 1922, the voters choose three candidates to serve as commissioner. Referred to as the “First Ticket” the three candidates named by the “Committee of Fifty-Five”, J. R. Morris, E. A. Joachim and J. Y. Brown, carried each of the four Wards by a margin of three-to-one, followed by candidates W. W. King, A. V. Conway, H. K. Hawthorne, and Annie W. Walker. Later that year, on September 1, 1922, the city was taken over by the Commission-Manager form of government.[2]
