Who do you think should be entitled to VOTE?
The U.S. Constitution does not give the national government the power to set voting qualifications. This power is reserved (given) to the states. Traditionally, voting has been considered a privilege granted to many, not a right belonging to all. Therefore, all states place some limitations on who can vote.
This activity gets students thinking about what it means to set suffrage standards and how that might impact various demographic groups.
