A propos de cet article

Nicely presented original 1815 manuscript document certifying the votes for town representation in the General Court of the State. It reads, in part: "At a legal meeting duly notified and holden in the town of Loudon - 1815 - Mr. Jedidiah Tucker was chosen to represent . . . Loudon in the General Court . . . A true copy of record, Attest, Henry Jackson." Measures 7.25" x 6.5". Light agewear, Overall Very Good, Near Fine condition; attractive and quite rare. ===================== "New Hampshire's political culture was and continues to be steeped in the desire to preserve local, community interests." The method of voting began with voice votes at town meetings, but by 1804 New Hampshire had directed in state statute that town clerks be chosen by ballot. Ballots were hand written, although by the 1830s, printed ballots came into use. Early in the new republic, the right to vote reflected the tension between the Federalists, those property owners with a "stake in society," and the Republicans (Democratic-Republicans), who wanted to expand democratic participation as broadly as possible—so broadly, in fact, that some feared "mob rule" at the other end of the spectrum. By 1800 New Hampshire was one of just three states (the others were Kentucky and Vermont) that had universal white manhood suffrage, having done away with the requirement of property ownership. All of New England except Connecticut allowed African Americans to vote without significant restriction. New Hampshire endorsed the principle that the more people taking part in the democratic process, the better." - Tufts U. ============= Interesting relic of the early town voting custom in NH.
