The Henry Ford

During the mid-1800s, Americans used preprinted ballots to vote. Political parties printed and distributed these ballots, sometimes through local partisan newspapers. These ballots listed candidates only from a single party -- so everyone knew who you voted for. Bold voters could scratch out or paste over names. This ballot was used in 1864 by Massachusetts Republicans to vote for Abraham Lincoln.
