Title

Leaflet : Instructions for Election Day. [Circa 1915-1917]

Description

Instructions for poll-watchers to help curb illegal corruption or maneuvers to change the results of the election. The flier provides detailed instructions and logistics for being a watcher.

This leaflet is specific to the woman suffrage amendment but does not provide a state or year. It is most likely this flier is from New York in either the 1915 or 1917 election when the woman suffrage amendment was voted on. It is also possible this was distributed by the Honest Ballot Association, which taught classes to women who served as poll-watchers leading up to the New York elections.
