How To Reach The Rural Voter



How To Reach The Rural Voter


This booklet entitled, "How To Reach The Rural Voter," was written by Amelia MacDonald Cutler as a part of the National Woman Suffrage Association's "Efficiency Book Series." This booklet outlines step-by-step instructions on how to best appeal to rural voters and divides these steps into the following chapters: 1) "Character of district and of suffrage objections," 2) "Answers to the suffrage objections," 3) "Kind of suffrage workers," 4) "Cordial relations between farm and suffrage organizations," 5) "Character of arguments for organization," 6) "Of general appeal," and 7) "No appeal."

"The Efficiency Series" is a series "designed to educate suffragists themselves. The pamphlets embody the actual results of practical experience." Other titles in this series include "A Suffrage Training School," "How to work for Suffrage in an Election District or Voting Precinct," "How to Raise Money for Suffrage," "Blue Book Suffrage School," and "Suffrage Argument - Outline for Speech or Debate."
