Jean Learns About Rights and Responsibilities of Citizens
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     "Hi, Jean, how's it going?" Rob asked.
 
2     "I'm doing well, thanks," Jean replied.
 
3     "When do you take your citizenship test?" Rob asked.
 
4     "In a few weeks," Jean said. "I'm getting nervous."
 
5     "You'll do fine. You knew most of the answers when I helped you study," Rob assured his friend.
 
6     "There are some things we didn't go over yet. Can we talk about them today?" Jean asked.
 
7     "Sure, let's get started," Rob agreed. "What's the topic?"
 
8     "Rights and responsibilities of citizens," Jean told him.
 
9     "Okay, what do you want to know?" Rob asked.
 
10     "What can you tell me about voting?" Jean asked.
 
11     "Voting is a huge responsibility. It is also one of our basic rights as citizens," Rob explained. "Our leaders are elected by the people. Every citizen should exercise his right to vote. Voting has been a big issue in our country's history. There have been four amendments that deal with voting."
 
12     "What were they?" Jean asked.
 
13     "Three deal with who has the right to vote. At first only white males could vote. Later, the right was given to male citizens of any race. Still later, women gained the right to vote. During the 20th century, the vote was extended to any citizen aged 18 or older," Rob said.
