'This Home Will Help Make Ohio
Description: Printed in 19‌14 in Columbus, Ohio, by Allied Printing Trades Council, this poster urges Ohioans to vote a dry ballot. The text reads "This Home Will Help Make Ohio 'Dry,' Will YOU?" and shows a young boy carrying the American flag. In the lower left corner is a sample ballot with proposed constitutional amendments listed and the appropriate vote marked. Ohio played an important role in the Temperance and Prohibition movements in America from their beginnings in the late 19th century with the formation of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1874 and the Ohio Anti-Saloon League in Oberlin, Ohio, in 1893.
