The Chief Electoral Officer reported to me on the subject, while the State officers reported to the heads of their Departments. I have made public the report of my officer, and it now rests with the States to take such legislative action as may he necessary to give effect to the reports. T have not received any official information on the subject, but I understand that the matter is now receiving consideration in the States.
