Title syntax[edit]

Why is there a "the" in "Sejm of the Congress Poland". Surely it's "Congress Poland", not "the Congress Poland".

Also, having the words "refers to" in the lead sentence is almost always an error of use vs mention. Expressions refer to things. Things don't refer to things. Fut.Perf. 15:29, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

Suffrage[edit]

The article currently states that "Voting was open to all persons of 21 years or older." If this is true, it would make a rather radical rewrite of Female suffrage necessary. Or was it just men?

Also, even if it was only males, how is that statement compatible with the sentence a bit further down, "about 100,000 people in the Congress Poland population of 2.7 million had the right to vote"? I don't really see how people above 21 years could amount to only 4% of the population. Fut.Perf. 15:34, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
