“Give the women who own property and pay taxes a chance to vote. The legal voters of Colorado must decide for or against equal suffrage on the 7th of next November.”—The Aspen Daily Times, August 26, 1893
Something I didn’t know: Colorado was the first state to give women the right to vote, by popular ballot (and it wasn’t even close) on November 9, 1893. That’s 118 years ago today, and 27 years before the 19th Amendment became the law of the land. Happy anniversary, Centennial State!
