Voting Vocab: Can You Match These Definitions To The Correct Word?
The 19th Amendment to the US Constitution is responsible for finally giving women voting rights. It was ratified August 18, 1920, and it basically says “The right to vote will not be denied by the US on account of sex”. It’s a short amendment, but it had a great impact on the United States. Many terms are used specifically by government and congress to describe the various procedures and concepts that helped create this legislation, and this quiz will test that knowledge.
