From The Indianapolis Star, Tuesday, April 3: Indiana women voters will not be provided with separate polling places, but their votes will be segregated and counted separately according to an opinion delivered to Gov. Goodrich on the new state suffrage law. While men and women will use the same polling place, election boards may provide a separate entrance if the boards deem it necessary. In Marion County men will vote on voting machines and women will vote on paper ballots. Also, while foreign-born men will continue to be allowed to vote once they have declared their intention to become American citizens, foreign-born women must be citizens under the equal suffrage act. The separate forms for casting ballots will guarantee the election’s validity if the courts should rule the suffrage act unconstitutional after an election is held in which women participated.
