Voting for a Change - The Impact of the 19th Amendment on our Community highlights the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in the United States and how local women championed this cause. The exhibit also features “modern” gadgets to help women in the early 1900s, the clothing they wore and how it was changing, and the struggles women underwent to help our state and country achieve voting rights for women. Visitors will be able to cast their ballot in the 1920 election in an early voting booth, discover political cartoons of the time, and learn about leaders who influenced participation by women in all spheres of our community.
