Wolverhampton East by-election, 1908
- ... that in a by-election in Britain in 1908, before women were given the vote, a Mrs Lois Dawson was allowed to vote because her name had appeared on the electoral register by accident?

- Article is new enough, long enough, adequately sourced, no close paraphrasing seen in online source. The page does have a folksy feel about it; the first paragraph under Description seems like it belongs on Thorne's page, not here. The hook is also a bit wordy; can you give it a little more punch, perhaps incorporating some information from Footnote 1 into the passage in question? I would also like to know if Rbreen have any DYK credits to his/her name? If so, a QPQ is in order. Thanks, Yoninah (talk) 00:53, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
- Yoninah, looking at Rbreen's talk page history, there are no previous DYKs to be seen. No QPQ is required. BlueMoonset (talk) 17:43, 1 February 2014 (UTC)
