In 1892, Benjamin Harrison (1833-1901) and Grover Cleveland (1837-1908) met again, but this time Cleveland won the race, becoming the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms.  Banners for the Republican ticket of Harrison and Whitelaw Reid (1837-1912) employed patriotic colors and flag motifs.  They reminded voters that the candidates supported "Republican protection to home industries."  The election of 1892 marked a number of changes in voting: women were allowed to vote in Wyoming; the secret ballot was adopted in most states, allowing for a more orderly election process; and the first mechanical voting machines were used in Lockport, New York.
