Happy Voting day! I couldn't pass up the opportunity to give you all a bonus episode on one of the most historic civic duties in American history - voting. This is an episode all about the history of voting in the United States. I will cover how many individuals fought for the right to vote and why your ability to exercise your franchise may not be as protected as you may think.
I chat about the 15th, 19th and 24th Amendments as well as the Snyder Act and the history behind the term "grandfathered in." Tune in - and go vote!
