History of Voting

This guide will focus on the history of voting starting with the passing of the 19th Amendment to the emerging political involvement of the LGBTQ and Latinx communities. The guide will have a local focus due to the Special Collections but with an eye to the larger impacts from voting by taking a look at the history and resources we hold at Atkins Library.
