Suffrage

A Scribner Library exhibit in celebration of the New York State centennial of woman’s suffrage is currently on view in the library lobby. Come see the exhibit and learn about Skidmore College’s role in the 1917 NYS vote for women’s rights.

On November 6th, exactly 100 years to the day, attendees at the exhibit’s opening reception had the opportunity to participate in a mock vote on the suffrage amendment. With 98 ballots cast, the NYS Woman Suffrage amendment passed with 97 Yes votes and 1 No vote.
