This civic poster from the days of World War II is always a good reminder that the right to vote is something that millions of Americans have fought to earn, protect and defend. It cost something. So, as we always do on Election Day, we encourage you to exercise that right. Vote your conscience. We keep the blog short to give you more time to get there. We’ll see you later in the week.
“The right of citizens of the United States, who are eighteen years of age or older, to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of age,” states the 26th Amendment (1971).
I like it, Cherry-Lynn. I’ll add…
“The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.” — the 15th Amendment, U.S. Constitution.
Adhering to our fundamentals are critical to providing a democracy for the next 250 years.
African American History – I like that
What a strong and powerful reminder of our civic duty to exercise the rights for which they fought.
The rights we still fight to defend. We need to make sure they fight for a reason we cherish. We need to do our part.
