The purpose of this booklet was to assist "the women of Kansas in discharging the duties of citizenship." The pamphlet describes who should vote, where to register, where to vote, how to vote and the general election process. The pamphlet also includes information about the federal, state, city, and county governments. Kansas amended its constitution in 1912 to give women the right to vote in all elections in Kansas. The year 1913 was the first time Kansas women could vote in statewide elections. They previously had the right to vote in school board and municipal elections. Women who had participated in the suffrage movement wanted to educate other women about how to use their votes by providing information about how to register but also about state and local government in general. Mary E. Dobbs was one of the leaders in the Woman's Christian Temperance Union in Kansas. The WCTU had been active in the various campaigns to gain voting rights for women in Kansas.

Creator: Dobbs, Mary Evelyn, 1870-1943
