Democracy may be a right, but too often in the world it is a privilege. As part of the Library's joint project with the People’s History Museum, Voting for Change, you can come and see some of the exciting newly acquired objects that help both organisations better tell the history of the fight for the vote. These include an archive of election material from North Lincolnshire - including expenses spent on beer and breakfasts for voters - and an 1819 cartoon arguing it would be ‘the scum’ who would rise to the top if more people got the vote.
This is a drop in session with no need to book and a chance to get up close to these historic objects. A member of staff will be on hand with tea and discussion – neither will be compulsory.
