First Presidency and Apostles discuss B. H. Roberts's opposition to equal suffrage at recent State Constitutional convention. "Brother Roberts had been sent for And told by Pres[iden]ts [Wilford] Woodruff and [Joseph F.] Smith their wishes and requested not to be active in his opposition to the suffrage clause as it was in the interests of the people to have the suffrage clause approved and made a part of the Constitution." Equal suffrage would increase the percentage of Mormon voters.
