Join Peter Drummey, the Stephen T. Riley Librarian for a look at our virtual exhibition Who Counts? A Look at Voter Rights through Political Cartoons. Political cartoons have long served as provocateurs of public debate illustrating opinions of the day for the masses. Our show looks at how cartoons have explored two broad themes: efforts to expand access to voting and efforts to restrict access to voting. Illustrations explore voting as a civil right, women suffrage, and voting by mail as well as Gerrymandering, the Electoral College; and political corruption.
Please note, this is an online event held on the video conference platform, Zoom. Registrants will receive an email with links to join the program.
