Securing voting rights The practice of limiting suffrage arrived in North America with the first settlers from England. Every colony imposed a property qualification for voting, and many denied the franchise to Catholics, Jews, Native Americans, and freed Black slaves. Women were also rarely allowed to vote. Every expansion of suffrage since then had to overcome both philosophical objections and resistance rooted in the mundane calculations of political advantage. 2

Securing voting rights: Male suffrage The land was easier to acquire and far more evenly distributed in the colonies than in England, so a larger proportion of adult men qualified to vote. Universal suffrage for (White) men was not fully achieved until the 1840s in the wake of the triumph of Jacksonian democracy.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
