The 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, granting women the right to vote, was ratified on August 18, 1920.

Yesterday, on the Johnson County Courthouse lawn in downtown Warrensburg, area Democrats held a rally to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the amendment.

Approximately twenty-five individuals attended, wearing masks and keeping social distance.

Lindsey Simmons, the Democratic Party candidate in the 4th Congressional District.

Throughout the rally occasional passersby, clued in by the large banners, would rev their vehicle engine, shout occasionally audible 19th century sentiments, and in one case, peeled out down the street. Welcome to Missouri in the 21st century.

“Donald Trump!” – the hand holding a cigarette out the passenger side window is a nice touch.
