Pursuant to a Decision, Order, and Direction of Second Election 1 issued by the Board on April 24, 1957, an election by secret ballot was conducted on May 9, 1957, under the direction and supervision of the Regional Director for the Twenty-first Region, among employees in the unit heretofore found appropriate by the Board. Upon the conclusion of the balloting, the parties were furnished a tally of ballots which shows that there were approximately 859 eligible voters, that 418 ballots were cast for Petitioner, that 415 ballots were cast against Petitioner, that 4 ballots were challenged, and that 3 void ballots were cast.

Thereafter the Employer filed timely objections to the election.

As the challenged ballots were sufficient in number to affect the results of the election, the Regional Director caused an investigation of both the objections and the challenges to be conducted and on July 5, 1957, issued a report on challenged ballots and objections in which he found that the objections are without merit and recom= mended that they be overruled. The Regional Director also found that all of the challenges are without merit and recommended that they also be overruled and the ballots be opened and counted. Thereafter, the Petitioner filed exceptions to the Regional Director's find1117 NLRB 1340.
