whats he want

In 1868, Edison returned home to find his beloved mother was falling into mental illness and his father was out of work. The family was almost destitute. Edison realized he needed to take control of his future. Upon the suggestion of a friend, he ventured to Boston, landing a job for the Western Union Company.At the time, Boston was America's center for science and culture, and Edison reveled in it. In his spare time, he designed and patented an electronic voting recorder for quickly tallying votes in the legislature. However Massachusetts lawmakers were not interested. As they explained, most legislators didn't want votes tallied quickly They wanted time to change the minds of fellow legislators He died on October 18, 1931, in West Orange, New Jersey.
