Perhaps the best newspaper to have with news on any Presidential election, being from the nation's capital.
Page 3 has a report headed: "Result of the Presidential Election" which gives the definitive report that Lincoln has formally won the election, noting that: "The whole number of Electors of President and Vice President of the United States...is 303, or whom 152 are a majority. The states, being sufficient to elect, which have decided that their electoral votes shall be cast for Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, and Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, are the following:..." and what follows is a chart showing 169 electoral votes for Lincoln, officially giving him the election.
This is followed by various other reports relating to the election.
A great issue on Lincoln's election.
