Ratification of the 19th Amendment by the Florida Legislature, 1969

Date
1969-05-22
Description
Senate concurrent resolution number 1172 ratifying the 19th Amendment. Florida was not one of the states that ratified the 19th Amendment during 1919-1920. In fact, neither house of the Florida Legislature had even voted on the measure. Though the Legislature would pass a law in 1921 that provided the vote to all residents, it was not until 1969 that it symbolically ratified the 19th Amendment. The resolution passed Florida's Senate and House of Representatives on May 13 and was approved on May 22.
