In other writings of the era when the German party was increasing its
share of vote totals, Marx and Engels reiterated their utilitarian approach to universal suffrage and elections. The most notable comment came in Engels’s Origin of the Family, Private Property and the State, written in connection with the approaching 1884 Reichstag elections: “Universal suffrage is the gauge of the maturity of the working class. It cannot and never will be anything more in the present- day state; but that is sufficient. On the day the thermometer of universal suffrage registers boiling- point among the workers, both they and the capitalists will know where they stand.” He wrote more explicitly in a private communication: “[U]niversal suffrage … indicates with the most perfect accuracy the day when a call to armed revolution has to be made.” No advice, as the events of 1917 reveal…was as influential and consequential as this in Lenin’s calculus for the timing of the Bolshevik- led insurrection.
—  August Nimtz, “Lenin’s Electoral Strategy from 1907 to 1917″
