This article, printed in the Kansas Freeman newspaper, gave a preliminary count of the votes cast in the election to ratify the Topeka Constitution. Two other issues on the ballot were whether slaves should be excluded from the territory, and whether the territory should have a general banking law. The returns from Lawrence, Topeka, and Tecumseh were listed, but not all the returns had been tallied.

Date: c. December 15, 1855
