In Counting Women's Ballots, Kevin Corder and Christina Wolbrecht use new data and novel methods to provide insight into whether, how, and with what consequences women cast their ballots in a sample of ten states during the first five presidential elections following the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. This website serves as the data archive for this project, including the merged census and election returns, the estimation strategy and code, and the estimates of turnout and vote choice employed in the book. Replication data are also available for the authors' 2006 Journal of Politics article.

This site is a work in progress and the full site will be rolled out in the summer of 2016. Contact Kevin Corder if you need data or have questions.
