Celebrate on August 26!

The Tennessee Senate passed the 19th Amendment, and then the Tennessee House of Representatives passed it on August 18.

However, Tennessee Governor Roberts didn’t sign the Certification of Ratification until August 24. After that, the Certification of Ratification traveled by train to Washington, and Secretary of State Colby signed it on August 26. The 19th Amendment became part of the U.S. Constitution on August 26.

What’s the best way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment?

In an article in The New Yorker, Casey Cep writes about the precariousness of voting rights today “when even those who supposedly have the right are often prevented from exercising it. Disenfranchisement can take many forms—and its most insidious manifestations are regrettably common: purging voter rolls, passing voter-identification requirements, understaffing or closing polling places, gerrymandering voting districts.

“Under the circumstances, perhaps the best way to celebrate the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment is to remember all those who cannot vote, not only those who can!”
