The Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution was passed on June 4, 1919. Before that happened the women of Massachusetts signed petitions calling for the State Legislature to support it. The numbers were overwhelmingly in favor of equal voting rights. Massachusetts ratified the amendment on June 25, 1919. The active participation in the war effort from 1917 to 1918 helped to win support for the amendment which became part of the constitution on August 26, 1920.
