Very rare and original, 1844 Clay / Theodore Frelinghuysen Whig Party Presidential Election Ballot from the State of Virginia. This very rare, Presidential Campaign ballot measures approx. 4 1/8" by 7 1/2" and reads at the top “Whig Electoral Ticket”. Below this title is text that reads “For President of the United States, Henry Clay, of Kentucky / The Glory of His Country, and the First Living Statesman” and “For Vice President, Theodore Frelinghuysen, of New Jersey / An Upright and Able Statesman, and Honest Man”. There follows a paragraph that extols the virtues of the Whig candidates and their platform which reads “These men. If elected, will support American industry against the capital and pauper labor of Europe, which will lead to the creation of a steady and permanent HOME MARKET for the American farmer. They will support the distribution of the proceeds of the public lands among the States, to whom they of right belong, thus securing annually to Virginia from a half million to a million of dollars for educating her children: and they are friendly to a sound National Currency, which will make money more plenty and prevent its depreciation. These are the measures to make the country great and prosperous and to protect Liberty. Whigs of Virginia! Let each man now do his duty!” Text below this paragraph lists the Clay / Frelinghuysen Whig Electors for President and Vice President from Virginia (no other candidates for State or Local offices are listed). This rare and original, 1844 Presidential Campaign Ballot is in very good condition – generally clean and crisp and well preserved with the name of the voter who cast the Ballot in 1844 written on the reverse. A very rare and original, 1844 Henry Clay / Theodore Frelinghuysen Presidential Election Ballot from the State of Virginia and a fantastic addition to any Political Americana collection!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges: The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by eBay and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
