Library of Congress Subject Headings
LC Subject Headings:
"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex". (United States Constitution, Amendment 19).
This means that women as well as men, may take part in all elections, national, state, and local, regular and special. Whatever may be said to the contrary the women of North Carolina are eligible to vote on equal terms with men. Provision has been made for the women to vote this year without paying poll tax.
Women are affected, in equal degree with men, by conditions of government, profiting or suffering according as the government is good or bad. Since this is so, it is clearly the duty of women to take a responsibility in their government--they should, at least, contribute their thought and the force of their vote towards making their government what they would like to have it.
In order to vote it is necessary first to register. This may be done any day from Sept. 30 to Oct. 23 inclusive.except Sundays.
All women are urged to study the issues of the present campaign and to inform themselves as to the candidates for the various offices, national, state, county, and city. Investigate their personal and political qualifications and their stand on the issues of the campaign. Every enfranchised citizen has a solemn DUTY to VOTE. Not only that, but to VOTE INTELLIGENTLY. Let us vote, not blindly with our minds closed by political prejudice but with our eyes and minds open to a knowledge of conditions and the ideals of good government.
