This 19th century ballot box helped coin the term “black ball.” The box was passed around and members chose either a white ball for a “yes” or a black ball for “no.” The balls were put in the funnel and collected in the closed portion of the box. The box was then opened and it took only one black ball to defeat the vote (or candidate).
