Who Can Vote? A Traveling Exhibit

Fogler Library has been selected to host the traveling exhibit, Who Can Vote?: A Brief History of Voting Rights in the United States, a display developed by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History with the support of the Annenburg Public Policy Center. 

Seven panels, located in the Reserve Reading Room, describe national events from 1787 to present. An added display case features materials available through Fogler Library and the Special Collections & Projects Department with perspective from Maine, New England, and Maritime Canada. Groups are welcome to contact us to have voting-related materials added to a table near the exhibit. All items will be on display on the library’s first floor through February 16, 2024.
