Abstract:
"Did you know that voting in any election--from mayor to president--is a privilege and a right? Americans eighteen and older are allowed to vote! But this hasn't always been the case for everyone. From the founders of this country to Jim Crow to women's suffrage to gerrymandering--and everything in between--Erin Geiger Smith takes an in-depth look at the fascinating and complex history of voting in the United States. Learn the history, discover what you can do now to get more people to vote, and get empowered to ask BIG questions like: What can I do to support my favorite candidate? ; How can I make a difference in my community? ; Who can I talk to about the issues I believe in? Anyone can make a difference in the world by standing up for what they believe in--and that includes voting!"-- Book jacket.
