Election Literature, 1874: A poster in support of Eneas MacKintosh of Raigmore

This mock ballot paper was produced during the General Election campaign of 1874 in the Inverness Burghs constituency by the campaign team for the incumbent MP, Eneas MacKintosh of Raigmore. It includes the names of the candidates standing for election.

The result of the election for the Inverness Burghs seat (comprising Inverness, Nairn, Forres, and Fortrose) was:
Fraser MacKintosh (independent Liberal) 1134
MacKintosh of Raigmore (Liberal) 879
MacKintosh of Holme (Conservative) 16.

In the election as a whole the Liberals, led by William Gladstone, won a majority of the votes cast, but Benjamin Disraeli's Conservatives secured a majority of seats in the House of Commons, largely because they won a number of uncontested seats
