Only that citizens have the right to vote for a US Representative if they are able to vote in the largest house of their state's legislature. People did not have the right to vote, granted by the Constitution, for anything else including Senators and the President/Vice President. Some states did have popular voting for Senators and Presidential Electors at the time, but it was not required. It is still not required for states to allow popular voting for Presidential Electors, however all states practice this.

In the original Constitution did women have the right to vote?

No. The Constitution only uses the gender neutral "people" or "person" and never specifically mentions either sex, male or female. The Constitution was thus phrased to apply equally to both women and men.Contrary to common opinion, women were not denied the right to vote by the original Constitution--the individual states were left to determine their own requirements for voting. It was at the state level that women were unconstitutionally denied their right to vote. The states lost the power to exclude citizens from voting on the basis of sex with the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

What right is not found in the original Constitution?

Many rights were not in the original Constitution of the United States.
