OK, I tried this on Politics and Other Controversies and no one was responding. They're too busy talking about Sarah's clothes, her towel, etc. So with some slight revision, I'm trying it here. States are listed in order of east to west.

Sorry all you Illinoisans, my computer vision is really bad with my contacts. I spelled "Illinois" wrong.

I believe it was Wyoming in 1919 or 1920.

What's the purpose of this poll, to test people's knowledge of history? There's only one correct answer.

Well, yeah. There was a thread on P & OC about "thank goodness for the northeast" that sounded very, well, smug about their election results.

I stopped reading P & OC threads several months ago, as I realized life is too short to waste seeking out stupidity.

I thought it was New Jersey...didn't it give woman the right to vote in the early 19th century but take it away after a few decades?

Obviously, none of this changes that fact that Cheney, aside from Bush, bears the most responsibility of the tremendous failures of the Bush presidency.

The ability to vote in a federal election is a federal function. If the federal government says "Yes you can cast your vote", no matter what state you live in you are able to participate in that federal election.

Um, do you know your history? Where are New York and Ohio on this poll? Seneca Falls ring a bell?
