at least one person there pointed out to their friend that they were signing away their right to vote

The only boy in it does point out to the girl that it means her right to vote, anyway...
At least one person seemed to think that they meant the opposite (or "suffering" maybe) because she says that it pretty much has ended, hasn't it? before she signs.

Points for easy reference.
I'm glad I am not the only one who looooves Blackadder!!!
I mean, people sign things like that all the time, that is to say things thata re idiotic without bothering to to think about it. I might, just to get him to shut up, knowing that such a thing wouldn't do anything anyways. Or I might stand there scratching my head and pointing out that we already got the vote.
Then again, anyone remember on Bulls**t when they got people to sign a petition banning dihydrogen monoxcide?

Probably because it is more "funny" to have women signing a petition to end women's right to vote. Also, the irony of having them sign a petition that would remove their ability to sign petitions (since legal petitions are limited to registered voters).
The reason only women were asked is the location of this video was a Catholic college prep school for girls in Delaware. There would have been no guys to ask.
