An illustrated election ticket for Martin Van Buren and Richard M. Johnson, listing Ohio Democratic electors for the presidential race of 1836. The ticket is illustrated with a small vignette of a man carrying a hog, and uttering the Democratic campaign slogan "Going the whole Hog." The hog remarks, "Pork 10 cts. pr. lb."--perhaps a favorable reflection on the economy under the Democrats. Given its similarities in typography and design to nos. 1836-17, -18 , and -19, and the ticket is probably from the same press.
