[Original Window Card:] PAY YOUR POLL TAX DEADLINE JANUARY 31ST EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE GREGG COUNTY JAYCEES
by [African American Interest - Texas]
Gladewater, TX: [Printed by:] The Mirror, 1966. Folio window card (19.5 x 14"; 49 x 35.5 cm). Printed in red on recto only of stiff card. A couple minor spots and corner bumps, but very good. An original Texas poll tax poster, issued under the sponsorship of the Gregg County Jaycees. Gregg County, located in Northeastern Texas, encompasses Longview, Kilgore and Gladewater, and as of the 2013 census, has a population of 125,000 souls. The Texas Poll Tax was added to the Texas Constitution in 1902, and in effect served to disenfranchise poor and minority voters. A vote to repeal it in 1963 failed, and it remained in place until it (and all poll taxes) were ruled unconstitutional in February of 1966. Dating of this window card can only be approximate, but the GLADEWATER DAILY MIRROR was established in the 1930s, but went through a number of name changes until rechristened the GLADEWATER MIRROR in the 1950s. The imprint does include the emblematic Typographical Union Label, for the Longview chapter. (Inventory #: WRCLIT77673)
