Take a moment to view this Long Beach History Minute about how in 1911, women formed the Long Beach Suffrage Society. As a result, the Suffrage Society organized precinct suffrage teas and gave men rides to the polls in their automobiles. Long Beach helped carry Southern California and women won the right to vote in California in 1911. On October 13, 1911, it was a Long Beach resident, Charlotte Carlin, who became the first woman to register to vote in Los Angeles County.
