Title

Pamphlet : The blank-cartridge ballot. [Circa 1900]

Description

Rossiter Johnson was a prominent author and editor whose wife, Helen Kendrick Johnson, also a writer, was active in the anti-suffrage movement.

The author discusses reasons why women's suffrage would be a mistake, including the idea that African American and immigrant voters already cast "blank cartridge" ballots with no impact on the outcome of an election; granting the vote to women would present the same problem. He asserts that women would wield more influence by educating and influencing those who already have the right to vote.
