Storyboard Text

  • Voting in America A Comic by Elena Meiman
  • Voting in America started from town hall meetings in the colonies.
  • I now call this town hall meeting to order.
  • The Declaration of Independence let people who owned land vote. These were mostly white male Protestants.
  • Can you guys sign this document?
  • Sure, but I'm going to sign it very big.
  • As of 1787, States could decide who votes. It would take till 1856 for property ownership to no longer be a requirement.
  • Did you hear? The state gave me the right to vote!
  • But not us.
  • In 1848, Women's Rights groups joined forces with Abolitionists to get both groups the right to vote. This unfortunately caused some bitter infighting.
  • She's a jerk.
  • Lets help each other out.
  • That would be wonderful.
  • He's an idiot.
  • In 1868, the 14th amendment is passed and African Americans are finally given the right to vote. This right only extends to men though.
  • Maybe someday I will too.
  • Kids! Papa has the right to vote!
  • Yay!
