Vote No 

Counting the vote, on November 7th, at “Elephant Johnnie’s,” 1876. In the 1970’s I worked as a poll worker and we had to tally paper ballots by hand, sometimes all night, while interested citizens looked on…..just like this drawing from Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper!

Counting Ballots 

Soon-to-be-president Taft is casting his ballot in the 1908 election. He was our president from 1908-1913.
