Part of the problem with being a colonist, prior to independence from England, was you had few rights. Most major political decisions were made by the king, and therefore, there was little voting of any kind in the colonies-- there was just obedience to the monarchy, and there were local leaders (royal governors) who made sure his will was carried out. But when the US declared its independence, that allowed some voting to occur-- most of the new states created their own constitutions; but as in England, only free white men (especially from the upper class) could vote. Some states tried to deny Catholics or Jews the right to vote, and no states allowed women or black people to vote.
