VOTING POLICY

From Then To Now - Published by: Tanajah Hawkins

What Was Voting Like Back Then?

Then, everyone didn't have equal rights to vote. Such as African Americans and Women as one. Only Caucasian males that owned land had that right. Women started to get fed up with not feeling as equal as men. So therefore, all women went on a stand and this led them to suffrage. The right to vote.

Any Changes?

Now; today, people were given equal rights. Blacks could now vote, all women of any color could vote, and white males who didn't own land could now vote. You only had to be 18 years old in order to vote. Amendments 15th, 17th, and 19th changed these things for citizens.
