Distributed by the Woman's League, this handbill urges women to register to vote in the upcoming election in Topeka, Kansas. One seat on the city council and six seats on the school board were up for election. In Kansas, women gained the right to vote in school district elections in 1861 and municipal elections in 1887. In 1912, eight years before the ratification of the national woman suffrage amendment, Kansas became the eighth state to extend equal voting rights to women.
