Population shifts, changes in age of population, or failure to strike the names of deceased or departed registrants, have resulted in percentage calculations in excess of 100 percent "registered" in some counties. 100 percent is shown in such cases.

Population figures are from Bureau of Census, 1950.
Registration figures are from Birmingham News, Feb. 17, 1959.
