In November 1911, California voters passed women’s suffrage. Early results showed defeat. But when the count was completed, rural voters had turned the tide. Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 8 (Proposition 4) had won by a tiny margin—an average majority of just one vote per precinct. California became the sixth state to approve women’s suffrage, joining Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Washington.
