The requirements for being able to vote have changed over the course of our history. Here’s a game that asks you to answer questions about voting rights and voting history. If you answer correctly, you earn a card that you can use to enfranchise your characters in the game. Be sure to pay attention to the year the character is attempting to vote. You look at the character’s age, gender, criminal history, status of citizenship, ability to read. This game can be played by four players, or you can take on the persona of four players to play the game yourself.
