April 7, 1846: The majority of territorial voters strongly endorsed statehood at the polls.
Wisconsin Argus, April 7, 1846
We have printed all of our tickets "For State Government," presuming that the most of them will be wanted in that form. Should a voter wish to vote the other way, he can easily erase the word "For" and insert the word "Against." This vote must be separated from the main ticket, as it is to be deposited in a separate box.
