The Nineteenth Amendment to the U S Constitution was ratified on August 18, 1920, it allows women to vote, anywhere in the Country. My own mother turned 7 years old 9 days later.
This is a Presidential Election year, any citizen who does not have an intellectual disability, or is not (in some states) a felon is usually eligible to vote.
