Jamestown Historical Society

From the Collection – We Vote in Jamestown!

Our online collection has many items from 1763 to 2020 describing the votes and voters of Jamestown.

The handwritten document is a list of freemen of Jamestown who voted for the governor and general officers of the colony of Rhode Island in 1763. The list is followed by the vote tally as certified by Benjamin Underwood, Town Clerk, April 20, 1763.

Visit the Town Hall to see the entire exhibit and please consider donating your Jamestown memorabilia to Jamestown Historical Society, contact info@jamestownhistoricalsociety.org.
