Handbill explaining the legality of Democratic loyalty oath, 1920

Date
1920
Description
This handbill was produced by the Florida Women's Christian Temperance Union, headquartered at Jacksonville. It notes that voters were being asked to affirm an oath of loyalty to the Democratic Party before they could be registered to vote, and goes on to explain that this requirement had been struck down by the courts. The relevant orders were handed down by Judge George Cooper Gibbs and Daniel A. Simmons. William T. Stockton was the voter who served as the test case to determine the legality of the loyalty oath.
