WOULD YOUR VOTE COUNT?

The California Council of County Law Libraries is pleased to present this online educational exercise designed to explore the evolution of voting rights in the United States and the impact it may have had on key presidential elections.

You will be asked certain profile characteristics (gender, age, property ownership status, etc). You may answer these based upon your own circumstances or enter fictional information, as you prefer. You will then be (randomly) assigned the year of a federal presidential election, given short profiles of the presidential candidates from that year and asked to vote.

You will be told whether your vote was accepted or not based upon the voting rights that were in effect as of the date of that election. You may be surprised to learn who was and was not allowed to vote….

After Law Week we will tally the results and post them on this website. Do you think the exclusion of certain groups will make a difference in the outcome?
