This page shows a 1902 voter registration card from Alamance County, North Carolina, certifying that the person registering had been eligible to vote prior to January 1, 1867 — that is, before the 15th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gave African Americans the right to vote. This certification was required under North Carolina’s 1900 constitutional amendment that effectively disfranchised African Americans.

James M. X [his mark] Moody
