Voices and Votes Democracy in America

Voices and Votes: Democracy in America

“Voices and Votes: Democracy in America” traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution examines the nearly 250-year-old American experiment of a government “of, by and for the people,” and how each generation since continues to question how to form “a more perfect union.”

The display includes historical and contemporary photos, educational and archival video, engaging multimedia interactives with short games, and historical objects like campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia, and protest material.
