This article, published in the Kansas Freeman newspaper, called for an election to accept or reject the constitution framed by the Topeka Convention in October, 1855. "Qualified voters of said Territory will meet at the several precincts hereinafter mentioned, on the 15th day of December, A. D., 1855." In that same election, voters were called upon to accept or reject a proposed general banking law. The article concluded with identification of the election precincts, a call for sober adherence to the election rules without the interference of "foreign invaders," and notice that any disruption of the election would cause the election judges to "unhesitatingly exercise the authority vested in them, and adjourn or remove the polls to such time and place as in their judgment will secure a legal election."
