That Ballot-Boy Again!, 1872. Artist: Joseph Swain

That Ballot-Boy Again!, 1872. The Ballot Bill stands up to the House of Lords. This relates to the Ballot Bill's passage through the Lords in June 1872. Two amendments had been made. One was designed by keep track of voters by marking their numbers on the ballot paper's counterfoil. The other, however, caused great discussion: it was to make secrecy optional. After the Bill returned to the Commons, secret discussions between the two Houses eventually resulted in the Lords withdrawing this second amendment. From Punch, or the London Charivari, July 20, 1872
