About 45% of eligible Kyivans voted in 1902 and 1906, 59% in 1910 – impressive turnouts by Imperial Russian standards if ‘Germanic’ Riga is excluded. See Michael F. Hamm, ‘Khar’kov’s Progres- sive Duma, 1910–1914: A Study in Russian Municipal Reform,’ Slavic Review 40 (March 1981) 17–36 for an examination of municipal politics in late-Imperial Russia.

Often, we were recruited for net-minding as well, depending on the turnout of players. The girls can play, but only when the
