Title

Leaflet : Catholic opinions, Iowa Equal Suffrage Association. [Circa 1916]

Description

In 1915, Iowa suffragists lobbied throughout the state to garner support for a June 5, 1916 referendum that would amend the state constitution and grant women the right to vote. The referendum was defeated by 10,341 votes.

The Women's Christian Temperance Union conducted an investigation after the election and found that thousands of unregistered votes were cast in what appears to be a fraudulent election.
