the best answer When Governor Glasgow signed the Electoral Bill on 19 September 1893, New Zealand became the first self-governing nation in the world where women had wo…n the right to vote. The Bill was the outcome of years of meetings in towns and cities across the country, with women often travelling considerable distances to hear lectures and speeches, pass resolutions and sign petitions. A number of petitions were presented to both Houses of Parliament from the early 1880s till 1893. Only two of these historically important documents are known to have survived and both are preserved at Archives New Zealand. The first of these was the unsuccessful 1892 women's franchise petition containing approximately 20,000 signatures. This was the culmination of many years work by the Women's Christian Temperance Movement and prominent suffragist, Kate Sheppard.

Aboriginal people gained the vote in Commonwealth territories in 1965, and earlier in different states, according to various state laws. In the United States, the Twenty-sixth Amendment granted suffrage to people between the ages of 18 and 21. Prior to the amendment's ratification in 1971, voters were required to be at least 21 years of age.

Few early supporters lived to see final victory in 1920.
