Program Description

There was a period in our past when voting rights were reserved primarily for white male property owners. But during a long struggle the rights of the ballot were extended regardless of property ownership, race, or sex. This lively program presents the history of the expansion of suffrage as it lays out arguments made by both sides in the hotly debated and often ridiculed subject. Particular attention can be paid to women’s suffrage, a time when Delaware was on the front line of the controversial debate.
