The history of Montgomery County politics is closely intertwined with the general history of politics in the United States. Local groups from our county participated in movements that helped to expand the franchise of voter rights and helped to make Pennsylvania a swing state. Montgomery County was also connected to state-wide political events such as the Buckshot War and the formation of the Pennsylvania State Police. As you view the exhibit, we invite you to ponder how these historic events relate to our modern-day politics.
