Harriet Tubman Wins Poll to Be the First Woman On the $20 Bill

Harriet Tubman Wins Poll to Be the First Woman On the $20 Bill

The campaign to have a woman featured on the $20 bill revealed a winner Tuesday.

After a 10-week online poll, Harriet Tubman received 33.6 percent of the 352,431 votes cast in the final round, according to the nonprofit group Women On 20s. Over 600,000 people submitted votes.

The famed abolitionist beat out Eleanor Roosevelt, who came in second, followed by Rosa Parks and Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Wilma Mankiller.

The campaign is currently organizing a "Virtual March" to the White House to bolster the petition.

Join the petition to have Tubman replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.
