More information about Final Jeopardy:
In 1869, Wyoming Territory passed the Wyoming Suffrage Act, giving women the right to vote. On September 6, 1870, the polls opened in the first election since the passing of the act; Louisa Swain of Laramie gained the distinction of being the first woman voter (as Laramie’s polls opened 30 minutes prior to Cheyenne’s).
According to the Wyoming State Historical Society, though, Wyoming’s reason behind giving women voting rights weren’t entirely magnanimous; many in the territory felt that it was necessary to counteract the fact that nonwhite men had been granted voting rights by the 14th and 15th Amendments. Another consideration was the thought that because men outnumbered women 6 to 1 in the territory at that point, that suffrage might attract more women to come to Wyoming.
