Overview

Have you ever voted on something? You might have voted for pizza for dinner, which movie to watch or who should go first in a game. If you have ever voted, you know how important it is to have a voice in making decisions that are part of your life. The people who created this country knew that too and took many risks to create a country where they could speak freely about what they wanted. The battle for voting rights was a long one—with some people being allowed to vote long before others. Read about who made the decisions and who had to fight for the same rights. Seeing how hard African Americans, Native Americans, and women fought to have the right to vote reminds everyone that voting is part of what created this country—and what will help it keep growing and changing today and in the future.
