Best Answer

Englandâ??s role as the most industrialized nation in Europe expanded the Middle Class and prompted reforms from Parliament. The 1832 Reform act, gave the Middle Class suffrage. The 1867 Reform gave the vote to both male house owners as well as a good portion of male lodgers, increasing the voting ranks by 1,500,000. This also gave voting rights to working class men. The 1872 Secret Ballot Act, made voting a private act, thus weakening the power of landlords in elections. The 1884 Reform Act expanded suffrage to farmers and laborers in the countryside.
