U.S. Voting Rights Over Time

Back in June I was asked for some input regarding an infographic that showed the evolution of voting rights in the U.S.  I think that the final product turned out well:

With Election Day just two weeks away, we are all anxious to know who will be our President for the next four years. Aside from opposing political views, we should all agree that voting is a major privilege. While some are uninterested in politics and others are anxious to send their ballot in, the bottom line is that we all have the freedom to vote, which is a significant triumph considering the history of our nation’s voting laws. Take a stroll down memory lane with this short three minute video on the evolution of our country’s voting rights.
