One of the most important rights and responsibilities of a United States citizen is the right to vote. Four amendments to the Constitution have been passed in order to protect this right.

The 15th provides that a citizen cannot be denied the right to vote because of race or because of having been a slave.

The 19th gave women the right to vote.

The 24th abolished the poll tax.

The 26th lowered the voting age from 21 to 18.
