One hundred years ago today, women in Washington state received the right to vote through a measure that passed on that year's ballot. In honor of the centennnial, women in men in period attire, some of them driving or riding in vintage autos, flooded the Capitol campus for music, speeches and celebrating.

Here, dozens listen to the New Horizons Band as they await a re-enactment of the delivery of the Nov. 8, 1910 election results.
