Voting plays a necessary and vital role in our American democracy - that is why so many have fought for the recognition and exercise of their right to vote. In "I Voted," you'll discover the people, protests and policies that have transformed voting in Michigan from the time of statehood in 1837 through today. The diverse stories are highlighted by a variety of artifacts, including an 1868 presidential campaign button, a tobacco pouch that belonged to an abolitionist and women's rights icon, and a 1920s voting machine. In the first-floor special exhibit gallery.
