Women Voters – The Sphere – Saturday 21st December 1918

WOMEN VOTERS RECORDING THEIR VOTES FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THE GENERAL ELECTION OF 1918

 

For the first time in this country, women, on December 14th, exercised the franchise in a Parliamentary election, and they did so with so much zeal that in some places they considerably outnumbered the male voters at the polls. Some were ignorant of the necessary procedure, but the majority had been so well coached by the press that they were well prepared. The artist shows the novel scene at a polling booth where women voters are depositing their ballot papers in the box.
