Who is eligible for vote in US?

According to the Constitution, Any person born or naturalized in any state is a citizen of that state, and of the United States. Any citizen that is over the age of 18 has the right to vote, except for felons while they are serving their sentences. This wasn't always the case. In the beginning, only land-owning White Men over 21 were able to vote. Non land-owning White Men were added when the Constitution was formally adopted, in 1789. Black Men over 21 were granted suffrage (the Right to Vote) in 1863, in the 14th Amendment. That Amendment has been assumed to cover All non-White men, since it does not specify color. Women were allowed to vote in 1920, with the 19th Amendment. Young people between 18 and 21 were added in 1971, with the 26th Amendment.
