White male Americans have been voting since the early 1800s, but it wasn't until the early 1900s and 1960s were women and minorities given the opportunity to vote. This is a guide to show you how to take advantage of your voting rights and to get involved. Voice your opinion to try and make our government one "of the people, by the people, and for the people," as Lincoln has addressed.
Since the 2008 election, many changes have already occurred since President Obama’s takeover; some of which are: raising our fuel-efficiency standards, improving health care, and ending the war in Iraq. These transformations are what American citizens caused just by checking a ballot.
VOTE to trigger more improvements to America.
