Time Out says

This Newberry Library exhibition collects newspaper clippings, political cartoons and other printed ephemera surrounding the 1920 election in the United States, held on the heels of World War I and the Spanish flu pandemic. A new ammendment to the Constitution gave women the right to vote for the first time, allowing more Americans to play a role in the decision between Ohio Senator Warren G. Harding and Ohio Governor James M. Cox. The Newberry's "Decision 1920" exhibition allows you to learn about the candidates, make your choice and cast a vote—it's good practice for the momentous election we're living through now.
