One of the first organizations to offer its support of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley was the Metropolitan Water District. The Museum's exhibit "Mr. Whitsett and Our Thirsty Valley" continues on display at the historical museum at Los Angeles Valley College. I thought it might be fun to salute the MWD and Election Day in Los Angeles, with three artifacts just added to your Museum's archives today.
Sol Shuman was only 22 years old when he was presented with this "Certificate of Registration" from the Metropolitan District on April 30th, 1935. Tucked away in Sol's id packet were two voter registration receipts (you had to re-register each time a change of address was made).
