Maryland Union Ticket

Maryland Union Ticket

Description
More so than the distinguishing marks of party symbols or candidate portraits, color helped observers identify party ballots as they were cast—and who cast them. Voting was still not entirely secret. The parties printed and distributed paper ballots cut from sheets. The Maryland Union Ticket was white in the 1860 election.
