Seminar: Candidates for School Board elections and how people voted

at Zoom

Convenor: Philippa Hurst

A group of leading townspeople controlled political life in St Albans in the late 1800s. Who were they? What were their backgrounds and alliances, and what matters were important to them? Which issues influenced the rate paying voters? Detailed Herts Advertiser reports of school board election campaigns help us address these questions, in particular revealing how the plumping voting system could be manipulated.

The seminar series will remain over Zoom for the foreseeable future. To allow ample opportunity for discussion following presentations, numbers will still be restricted to 25 so book early if the topic is of special interest. For members unable for any reason to attend, presenters are always willing to discuss the topic if you contact them after the event. Invitations to register will be sent via email a week before each seminar.
