The League of Women Voters set up a goose display in downtown Lexington near Union Station urging everyone to vote, the day before Election Day, Nov. 4, 1957. The sign on top says “They don’t vote they just squawk.” Viewing the display are Mrs. Thornton Scoot (left), Mrs. Thomas Stroup (lower right) and Mrs. Charles Thorne. More than 43,000 Fayette County voters were eligible to vote. Officials expected 25,000 to actually vote. Published Nov. 4, 1957 in the Lexington Leader. Herald-Leader file photo
