"Suffrage is the right to vote. The historical trend in the United States has been toward universal suffrage, the right to vote has always been subject to limitations. During the colonial period, suffrage was limited primarily to white male landowners, or to those white males who paid annual taxes. Generally landless men (both white and nonwhite), women, most former and current slaves, the unemployed, and many non-Christians were forbidden from voting."
