The History of Women Voting in Flagler CountyTuesday, November 2, 1920

The Flagler Tribune recorded that Harding and Coolidge swept the United States and that the Flagler Ladies voted for the first time.

The Bunnell Mercantile Company ran an advertisement praising the Emancipation of Women and wrote:


“Our wives and our daughters, sisters and mothers–God Bless Them,–will go to the polls and vote for a purer, a cleaner, a better government of the best country on the face of the globe on that day.

In the same issue was printed a letter threatening African American voters, however, the paper reported that 174 of this registered group did vote.
