Today -100: September 5, 1920: This campaign is for America

Harding denies targeting any appeal towards German voters: “This campaign is for America.”

The Tennessee State Senate passes, but the House rejects, a bill for poll taxes for women voters.

Most states will let women vote in November without requiring further legislation, but Mississippi’s attorney general says the four-month registration period stands. Georgia’s AG, in contrast, says that women can vote there even without registration, since they hadn’t had a reasonable opportunity to register. He says registration facilitates the vote, it is not a qualification for voting.

France splits Lebanon from Syria, the territory they’re running as a League of Nations mandate. Standard imperial divide and conquer stuff.
