When the Founders crafted the U.S. Constitution, they gave the authority to decide who could vote to the states. All but one decided it would be men—white, property-owning men, 21 years old and older.

The one exception was New Jersey. For the first few decades of our new nation, property owning women in New Jersey could vote. But in 1807, state legislators took a step backwards and rescinded the right. New Jersey women joined their sisters across the country who were shut off from the ballot. More.
