The vote is your fundamental right in America. Did you know that the 24th Amendment made it illegal for states to charge a poll tax to voters, 1964? Did you know that the Voting Rights Act authorized the federal government to take over the voting process because blacks were prevented from registering to vote or cast a vote through literacy tests and intimidation tactics, 1965?
Did you know that one vote gave America the English language instead of German, 1776?
Did you know that one vote gave Adolf Hitler leadership of the Nazi Party, 1923?
Let’s dispel the myth that your one vote doesn’t count or make a difference. The one vote has changed the course our nation’s history. Please visit http://www.usfca.edu/fac-staff/hancock/pol204/history.htm.
