Pennsylvania Men’s League for Women’s Suffrage: Votes by County, 1915

Historical Society of Pennsylvania

Published by the Pennsylvania Men’s League for Woman Suffrage, this map depicts the votes regarding suffrage in Pennsylvania in 1915. Support for woman suffrage in Pennsylvania was strongest in the western part of the state and along the northern tier. Chester County was the lone county in southeastern Pennsylvania to support the 1915 suffrage referendum. As this map notes, suffrage was supported by 49.16 percent of the voters outside of Philadelphia, but only 46.63 percent of the entire vote—indicating that Philadelphia’s anti-suffrage vote was very strong.
