With Election Day just around the corner, I thought it would be interesting to look back say 100 years, and see where people cast their votes in Scipio.
There are lots of interesting tidbits in the Book of Records for the Town of Scipio, started in 1794. An entry in 1912 shows the Town Board contracted for McCormick's Hall at Scipioville with Mrs. Virginia McCormick for $17 yearly, to use the Hall as the place for registration and the polling place for the second district.
At the same time, the Town Board designated Snyder's Hall in Scipio Center for the first district, and for all other town purposes including caucuses and justice court, for $35 yearly from John Snyder.
