The first illustrated history of printed ballot design illuminates the noble but often flawed process at the heart of our democracy. An exploration and celebration of U.S. ballots from the 19th and early 20th centuries, This Is What Democracy Looked Like reveals unregulated, outlandish, and, at times, absurd designs that reflect the explosive growth and changing face of the voting public. The ballots offer insight into a pivotal time in American history—a period of tectonic shifts in the electoral system—fraught with electoral fraud, disenfranchisement, scams, and skullduggery, as parties printed their own tickets and voters risked their lives going to the polls.
