Hmm. So maybe it's really the 1964 results that are surprising there. Perhaps blacks were allowed to vote a little earlier here than in the Deep South?
Quite plausible.

EDIT: (from some letter on the internet)
"I'd like to share my own impression of John Salter, whom I first saw on a 1963 television newscast being mercilessly pummeled by a group of white men.  The attack took place during a Black student demonstration in Jackson, Mississippi [Salter is white and Arizonan. L.T.]  A few months later, John appeared in my rural, eastern North Carolina community, where we Black people were staging our own demonstrations.

(...) Salter's civil rights record, his obvious sincerity, as well as his willingness to take on the local racists, soon won over the most skeptical among us.  For over a year, he worked in our community, facing daily death threats, abuse, and the virulent hatred of local white people.

With John Salter's help, we initiated a countywide voter registration drive, and when local officials set up obstacles, John convinced a battery of topnotch lawyers to challenge the county board of elections in court.  Our side won.   For the first time since the disenfranchisement of Blacks in the late nineteenth century, thousands of eastern North Carolina Blacks registered.

If I'm shown as having been active here recently it's either because I've been using the gallery, because I've been using the search engine looking up something from way back, or because I've been reading the most excellent UK by-elections thread again.

Fascinating stuff! Thanks.

It's just amazing to me that this one county only has managed to vote continuously Democratic, the last remaining remant of the old Solid South (well unless you consider South Texas part of the South).

Judging by the rest of this thread, by a county voting Democratic "since 1924", he means that such county has voted Democratic every election after 1924, but did not vote Democratic in 1924.

Tennessee

D: Haywood (since 1972)
R: Cocke, Hancock, Wayne (Never D in Atlas history which dates to 1912)

According to the maps on the Wikipedia pages for each election, Wayne has been R since 1876.  Cocke and Hancock have been R since 1868.  Hancock did vote for Breckenridge in 1860 but the last time Cocke voted Democrat was for Andrew Jackson in 1832, and even that appears to be by a close margin.

Thanks Don. I've stuck to using official Atlas data for this thread (though I jumped the gun a bit this year and used the AP for county results Dave doesn't have posted yet).
