If I had half a brain, I would have posted this earlier in the day (swiped from a DLCC e-mail):
Ninety years ago today, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, granting women everywhere the right to vote.
By the day the 19th Amendment was signed on August 26th, 1920, 15 states guaranteed women the right to vote in all elections. Thirteen other states allowed women to vote for presidential electors. Still others had granted limited voting rights for municipal offices or ballot initiatives.
Again, I'm sorry about my tardiness on this. I forgot about it, then I remembered it, and then I forgot about it again. This won't absolve me completely, but..."God knows what our country would be like right now without your wisdom and insight guiding our elections."
