Whether Voting Is A Right or Privilege?

Read and consider the following statements.

“Is voting a right or a privilege?”

“I always voted at my party’s call,
And I never thought of thinking for myself at all.”
—HMS Pinafore (1878), Act I

Voting is the hallmark of democracy and of freedom. . . . Our forbears died on battlefields far from home and on streets in their own cities for this basic freedom. In nations less free, less powerful, and less prosperous, people still die asserting the ideals of democracy.”
—Governor Michael O. Leavitt, Utah (2001)
