Kittens VotingIncluded in this fine Election Collection are old time radio shows about United States Presidential elections, voting, ballots, and even local elections of all sorts.  

The right to vote is sign of a healthy democracy where every citizen has an impact on the government.  Voting and elections were the topic of many old time radio shows of all genres: western, drama, comedy, new programs, quiz shows, drama, and more.

Woman Hammering Nail on Voting Sign with a Gun, In The Great Gildersleeve, Gildersleeve runs for mayor of Summerfield while in The Life of Riley, Riley tries to lose the election for the presidency of his lodge. In My Favorite Husband, Liz has been elected as the treasurer of the local women's club, but can she even balance the books at home? Mel Blanc discusses who he will vote for in the upcoming election. In Our Miss Brooks, Miss Brooks is voted as Miss Pigskin 1950 - oh, the honor!

Who can forget when the zany Gracie Allen ran for the Presidency in 1940 on the Surprise Party ticket? She gave speeches on her whistle stop train tour from Los Angeles to Omaha Nebraska and as she spoofed the Presidential campaigns of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Wendell L. Willkie.  Gracie Allen actually received many write in votes in the election. Democracy at it's best!

Included in this collection are also many historical documentaries about the Suffragettes who fought for the women's right to vote.  In the old time radio show You Are There listeners are brought to the events of September 7, 1853 as women began their campaign for the right to vote.

In the Western Radio Genre, Wild Bill Hickock is involved in an election scandal that will shake the town to it's core. Jimmy Stewart as The Six Shooter finds himself elected as the town sheriff AND mayor.

The Quiz Kids will impress you with how knowledgeable they are about history and politics that you will wonder why they don't have the right to vote!

Important news coverage of Presidential Elections, speeches, and campaigns are also included.

This show will hopefully inspire you to vote in upcoming elections both big and small because your voice and your vote matters.
