Description and Holding Information
1841-42, People's Convention. Article on suffrage
Article II of the Right of Suffrage at the 1841-42 People's Convention. Of note, a handwritten proviso was added at the end of this article. Of
note, this was part of the unsanctioned "Dorr Rebellion," when middle-class residents sought to significantly reduce the property requirements for
voting. Led by Thomas Wilson Dorr, this attempt to change the constitution and a subsequent armed rebellion were unsuccessful, but they ultimately led to a
new constitution which liberalized voting rights. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of a title originally held by Department of State in Providence,
Rhode Island).
Title:   Article second : of the right of suffrage.
