Two suffragists successfully vote: Mary Wilson in Battle Creek and Nanette Gardner in Detroit, who is permitted because she is a taxpayer and, as a widow, her interests could not be represented by her husband.Catherine Stebbins attempted to register to vote in Detroit’s first Ward, following Gardner’s success. She petitioned the Detroit Board of Registration, arguing on basis of human rights and US Constitution. Denied, her petition and the ensuing debate were covered in detail by the Detroit Free Press.
