Clipping entitled "Large Ballot Unwieldy" from the Kansas City Journal-Post on November 3, 1936 showing Kansas Citians voting at various polling locations on General Election Day. The caption states, "Mrs. Sally Hughes, 5600 Tracy avenue, is shown here struggling with the general election ballot, almost as large as a tablecloth, in the poll of the twenty-first precinct of the Fifteenth ward at Fifty-fifth street and Troost avenue. E. A. Scanlon, jr., election judge, at the right of the ballot box, is advising her how it must be folded with initials on its back showing, before it is crammed into the ballot box. Forty-one of the 522 registered persons had voted by 6:55 a. m. when the photograph was taken. —Journal-Post Photo."
