In the early 1800s, many states expanded eligibility to vote by lowering or eliminating requirements that white male voters own property. This expansion did not include women or people of color. In this lesson, students will determine how the expanded electorate helped Andrew Jackson win the presidency by analyzing campaign materials designed to appeal to these new voters.
