      ***1 = Alabama (Group A, below)
             Unpledged electors were the only Democratic choice for the Alabama voters.
             The state's Democratic Party leaders, led by Governor George C. Wallace,
             kept Lyndon B. Johnson off of all state ballots. As a result of this plus
             the popular vote, Barry Goldwater was the only named candidate eligible to
             receive Electoral Points, so he was awarded all 1,000 of Alabama's points.
