The “Ohio Next” button’s six stars represent the first six states to grant full suffrage: Wyoming (1869), Colorado (1893), Utah (1896), Idaho (1896), Washington (1910), and California (1911). In 1912, the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association’s campaigned to pass an amendment to the state constitution granting women the right to vote. They were unsuccessful.
