VOTE


Tuesday, November 7th, is election day. The most powerful tool any democracy has is the vote. Women have only had the right to vote for 85 years. August 26, 1920 the 19th Ammenedment gave women the right to vote after 70 years of struggle. Getting the vote wasn't easy and we can't take it for granted. Soooo, go out and vote!

What a great idea! Mary Anne, your
great grandmother (from whom you got the Anne in your name) Anne K. Wheeler was amoung those women who fought for women's right to vote.
Born in 1869, she spent almost 30 years working for that right.She'd be mighty proud of you. LOL, me
