The right to vote is the most elemental right of citizenship. Or is it? Through an examination of who could vote in Connecticut and under what circumstances, with a particular focus on African American and women suffrage, students will learn about the role of voting in building and maintaining a representative democracy, will examine the state of voting rights in the United States today, and answer for themselves “Why should I vote?”
