In response to a number of inquiries, the ration board announced that it was legal to use small amounts of gasoline to transport voters to the polls. It was pointed out that this only applied to rural areas where the distance to the polls was too great to walk conveniently. Voters were urged to join together to share rides and to combine trips to vote with visits to the market. A special ration for the limited time was available for candidates but not for their managers.
