Hi, Smithsonian folks... We were very pleased to learn that the wooden ballot box is currently on exhibit at the National Museum of American History's "American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith" exhibit. I wanted to let everyone know that the Association of the Oldest Inhabitants of the District of Columbia who donated the wooden ballot box to the Smithsonian back in, I believe, 1968 is still alive and well after 153 years and still conducts monthly luncheon meetings and supports select preservation activities. Thank for continuing to highlight items that the AOI of DC has donated over the years.
