Old Home Town - 100 years ago

February 20, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Feb. 20, 1909: “At 10 o’clock tonight, the registration books close for the city primaries which are March 2. It is thought a record-breaking number of voters will be on the books by closing time. About 150 ladies, many who came in large groups, were registered yesterday alone and some are talking about a possible ‘petticoat government’ since women can vote locally if not statewide or nationally.“
