Shasta Historical society


Chock full of maps, historic photographs, and voting information, the non-partisan exhibition California Votes: Exercise Your Right! will be on display on the Shasta Historical Society website from September 9th to December 9th, 2021.  

  The discovery of gold in California in 1848 changed the future states’ demographics and finances. In just two years, the population grew from 14,000 to almost 100,000. It was obvious from the outset that California needed a government. In this exhibit, flyers, campaign posters, and voting guides highlight how Californians have engaged with politics in the past.
