Poster encouraging voter turnout as a way to support freedom and the war effort

Object | Accession Number: 2015.363.1

Poster titled Your Right to Vote, promoting Roosevelt's Four Freedoms. Different types of wartime propaganda campaigns were designed around these slogans. This poster says that exercising the right to vote is the way civilians on the home front can protect the freedoms the US is fighting for overseas during World War II. This poster shows a vote for Freedom of Enterprise. The other choices on the ballot machine are Freedom of Worship, Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of Press. In his January 1941 State of the Union address, FDR proposed four fundamental freedoms that people everywhere in the world should enjoy: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear.
