This Day In History: 1944-02-29
Mrs. Mabel Petrie reminded parents and relatives of servicemen that the only way they could vote in the election in November was through a soldier’s ballot. Any adult family member could fill out an application for one for their serviceman. These could be obtained from there at Box 94 in Mahwah or by calling here at Cragmere 3937. Anyone twenty-one years of age or older on November 7, 1944 was eligible. The applications had to be sent to Trenton. Ballots would be sent directly to the service women or men, she said.
