WOMEN VOTES
« W ASHINGTON. Spt. 25. (Special to
the Times).—About 9.000,000 women
will vote in the November election
and they undoubtedly hold the bal
ance of political power. This state
ment is based on a computation from
the woman's vote in the Maine elec
tion.
About 80,000 women voted in the
Maine election. Based upon the cen
sus of 1910 that number is 32 per
cent of the number of women 21
years of age who live in Maine. The
Maine women number, according to;
the 1910 census, 248.309.
In the United States, according to
the latest census statistics, there are i
26.SS3.566 women of voting age. If
the ratio of 32 per cent which exis
ted in the Maine election prevails in
nl* states, and it probably will as
the women generally will want to
vote for the first time, there will
be cast in the November election an
aggregate woman vote of S.602.741, or
nearly nine millions. In the northern
states the per coinage probably will
he higher, and in the southern states
lower because in the “Solid South"
the black man is largely disfran-,
chised. and the negro women will re
ceive the same political tliscrimina- ,
tion in that section. But the na
tion's average probably will he about
32 per cent, which will give nine mil
lions.
Similar statistics show that there
•are about 29.577,690 men of voting
» age in the United States. In the
presidential election of 1916 there
were cast 18.528,743 ballots, ill per
cent of the total male population of
21 years of age. II can hardly he
expected that 'so large a percentage
of the women will vote, but it may
he safely said that at least 33 per
cent of them will.
Therefore it is evident to all ob
servers that the women now hold the
political balance of power. In the
.Maine election about 75 per cent of
the women voted the Republican tick
et. if that percentage should prevail
in all the states north of the Mason
and Dixon line and in the West a Re
publican landslide of unprecedented
magnitude would occur. That land
."iim- i-» umimnm,' r.\|ici u u •».» im
Republican managers and indeed in
Washington is practically already ac
knowledged by Democratic observers.
But it will not require 75 per cent
of the nine million women voting the
Republican ticket to cause a land
slide to Harding and Coolidge. If 32
per cent of the women voters in i
New York participate in the election
it will add nearly a million votes
in the Empire state. In 1916 Hughes
carried New York by more that lrtO.
000. the total vote being 1.706,354.
Had the women voted then a 100,000 j
plurality would have been increased
several times over.
In Pennsylvania a 32 per cent ratio
would have added nearly 750,000
woman's votes to the total of nearly
1.300,000 cast for Hughes in 1916.
Hughes carried Pennsylvania by 181,
950, or about one fourth of the women
votes that may he cast in Pennsyl
vania in November.
Wilson carried Ohio in 1916 by
S9.503. In Ohio if the 32 per cent
ratio occurs nearly half a million
women will vote, eleven times Wil
son's plurality in 1916.
There can be no question but that i
women now hold the key to the
national political situation and can
throw victory to the Republicans or ■
Democrats. Judging from the way '
they voted in the .Maine election it l
would seem that a great majority of:
the newly enfranchised citizens are
preparing to line up through the coun- J
try, except in the south, for Harding I
and Collidge.
Every intelligent observer must
agree that the result in Maine was
a complete Repudiation of the
League of Nations by women, and a
tremendous Republican victory, which
is ominous of Democratic defeat in
November. Women can justly claim
a great share of the victory in Maine
and had the women voted for the
league the victory would have been
equally significant of Democratic vic
tory in November.
