Looking Back to 1916: Women Voting for the First Time

From the November 23, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"Two prominent Elva women cast their first votes and both are at an advanced age.  One was Mrs. Susan Ward, aunt of Judge Harry McEwen who came to Elva in a taxi to take her to the polls.

"Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Agnew took Mrs. Helen Rollins who is seventy-five years of age to the polls.

"Both women are well and greatly interested in present day affairs.

Finally, the Right to Vote.  --Cooter
