On September 6, 1870, Louisa Ann Swain was walking past a polling place in Laramie, Wyoming on her way to buy yeast when election officials invited her to come in and vote.

-A throw away line at the end of Age of Ultron, to remove Thor from the playing field before Civil War. Yet it always sounded so ominous. We know Thanos wasn't manipulating the stones, so who was?
