Obama For President - On The 88th Anniversary Of Women's Suffrage, Obama's Campaign In NH Urges Women To Register To Vote

MANCHESTER—On the 88th anniversary of the ratification of the nineteenth amendment, which granted women the right to vote, Sen. Obama’s campaign in New Hampshire is urging unregistered women to exercise their rights, take a trip to their local town clerk, and register to vote. Across the state, the campaign is stressing the high stakes of this year’s election for women and their families, and is encouraging unregistered women voters to file their paperwork and take part in the democratic process.

“Women have a critical choice to make this November between Barack Obama, who will protect their rights as president and John McCain, who wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and even opposes equal pay legislation,” said Sandra Abrevaya, New Hampshire Communications Director. “As we celebrate this historic anniversary of women’s suffrage here in New Hampshire, I think there is no better way for unregistered women to raise their voices than to get to their town clerks and register to vote.”

In honor of the 88th anniversary of women’s suffrage, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama are coming together to recognize the significance of this day. Sen. Clinton is making a historic speech at the Democratic National Convention, and Sen. Obama’s campaign in New Hampshire is taking notice of the struggle to achieve equal rights and is encouraging women to exercise those rights by registering to vote at their local town clerk’s office.
