The original U.S. Constitution did not provide for a right to vote. Instead, voting was a privilege set by state law. Each state determined who was eligible and qualified to vote in local and national elections. Some states restricted voting to persons based on wealth, land ownership, free status, race, gender, education, or a combination of such factors.
