The Constitution: Did You Know....

… that the Constitution does not set forth requirements for the right to vote? As a result, at the outset of the Union, only male property-owners could vote.  African Americans were not considered citizens and women were excluded from the electoral process.  Native Americans got the right to vote in 1924.
