A middle aged white woman sits in driver seat of a carriage that has attached to its side a sign that reads “Vote Non Partisan Union Ticket.” The carriage is in front of a hotel, the Pullen House, with a series of dormer windows.

Harriett Pullen of Skagway used her wagon to both advocate for non-partisan political candidates and drive women to the polls in 1914, the first territory-wide election that permitted women to vote.
