Kansas approves amendment on poll tax

Kansas approves amendment on poll tax
Creator: Topeka Capitol
Date: March 29, 1963
This is a clipping from the Topeka Capitol. The article explains how Kansas became the twenty sixth state in the country in 1963 to approve an amendment to the United States Constitution to abolish poll taxing nationwide. Poll taxing had been used in several states since the end of the Civil War, particularly southern states, as a way to prevent African Americans from voting. The poll taxing amendment was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964. The right to vote openly and freely was at the core of the Civil Rights Movement. The passage of the poll tax amendment secured every American citizen the right to vote without having to meet any financial qualifications in order to do so.
