120 years later some things stay the same in Sheaffer family – Poll Watching

By Michael S Sheaffer

Poll watching certificates haven’t changed much in 120 years

On left is John E Sheaffer‘s Cumberland County, Pennsylvania poll watcher’s certificate from 1896 election which saw William McKinley elected President. On Right is John E Sheaffer’s 3rd Great Grandson Michael S Sheaffer’s (writer of this post) Dauphin County, Pennsylvania 2016 poll watcher’s certificate.  Amazingly 120 years later poll watcher’s certificates are still pretty much the same.  Do you have any of your ancestor’s political affiliation/participation certificates??
