A civic education program from the National Archives for students in grades 9–12.

Teachers and caregivers: register your high school students for a special webinar presentation of No Conscription Without Representation: Voting Rights and the Constitution!

Using the Constitution, constitutional amendments, legislation, and a Supreme Court case, students will explore the progression of voting rights in the United States with particular focus on the effort to lower the voting age to 18. Additional primary source documents from the National Archives, including photographs, video recordings, and political cartoons, will enhance student understanding of the ways in which contemporary events and public civic engagement influence their lives today.
