Migration Information Source – Immigrant Voting Rights Receive More Attention

Interesting stuff I found after a conversation with folks on hawaiiankingdom.info regarding suffrage rights, and whether or not the Hawaiian Kingdom constitution of 1887, which included suffrage for foreign residents, was an anomaly in terms of voting rights.

Apparently, from 1776 until 1926, 22 states and federal territories allowed non-citizens to vote in local, state, and even federal elections in the United States. I had no idea.
