November 6, 2012 - Voting 1899 Style
Wouldn't you love to see lines like these at the voting stations?
Hang out with friends . . . pack a little lunch . . . catch up on the gossip . . . or cause a new rumor!
FYI: This is voting day in Auckland, New Zealand, 1899.

What I Learnt Today
I was wondering about the women in the pic. What were they doing, just hanging out while the ol' man voted?
Turns out that, in 1893, New Zealand became the first self-governing country in the world in which all women could vote in parliamentary elections.

You could find lines like that here in Florida on Tuesday. I would post a picture but not sure of etiquette in IOTD thread for photos.
Your reply here?
