Elnora Babcock was active in the Political Equality movement (i.e. women's suffrage) in New York.

The following biography was published in:
Chautauqua County, NY
Dunkirk Evening Observer
Dec. 3rd, 1892
pg. 4
"The Utica Globe of today prints a good picture of Mrs. Elnora M. Babcock, wife of the Superintendent of our public schools, and now President of the Chautauqua County Political Equality Club. The Globe prints the following interesting narrative of Mrs. Babcock:
whose portrait appears in these columns, is the second (Mrs. Martha T. Henderson, of Jamestown, having been the first) President of the Chautauqua County Political Equality Club and is now serving her third successive term.
She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hiram L. Monroe of Columbus, in which she was born January 11, 1853. She was married Dec. 1, 1870 to Prof. J.W. Babcock, and came to Dunkirk in September 1880, with her husband when he entered the position, which he still holds, of superintendent of the city schools.
Their daughter, Maud R. Babcock, graduated two years ago from the Dunkirk Academy with high honors and was the valedictorian of her class. She is now in her second year at Cornell.
Their son, Frederick, is making good progress in the city school course of study.
Mrs. Babcock's third successive election shows the estimation in which her services as president are held. Before her election to the County Club, she was the efficient president of the Dunkirk Club.
At the last convention of the Women's Suffrage Association of the State, Mrs. Babcock was appointed a delegate of the convention for the amendment of the State Constitution."
