    Women of Colorado! You Have the Vote!

    WOMEN OF COLORADO!
    YOU HAVE THE VOTE
    HELP GET IT FOR WOMEN THROUGHOUT THE NATION
    BY VOTING AGAINST WOODROW WILSON AS THE
    DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS
    THE NATIONAL WOMAN'S PARTY

     

    Mom sent me a photocopy of this image a few years ago showing my grandmother Arline posing in front of a Colorado campaign poster. Mom was able to decipher the entire sign by using other pictures taken the same day of Arline's friend and her little boy standing with the same background. Little Gaylord was so small that the lower half of the sign is quite visible in his photo. 

    Although women in Colorado were granted full voting rights in 1893, when this photograph was taken in 1915 some states were still barring women from the polling booth. It would be a full five years until the 19th Amendment gave women in all states the right to vote.

    Women -- and Men -- remember to vote Tuesday, November 6th.
