Summary
The ability to vote-to have a legal say in the affairs of America, large or small-is one of the greatest powers a U.S. citizen can have.and, too often, it's one of the most neglected. This program reemphasizes the value of universal suffrage through the stories of Amendments 15, 19, 23, 24, and 26, which, taken together, enfranchise citizens 18 years of age and older and forbid denying the vote on the basis of race, sex, locale, or tax arrears. Profiles of Amendments 12, 22, and 25 (the Presidential Amendments) and Amendments 17, 20, and 27 offer additional insights into how the principles of democracy are put to work. Correlates to all applicable state and national standards. Recommended for middle school through college.
