Voting is a basic right of the people of any country where democratic laws and constitutions are present. Democracy forces the people of a country to select the people for the government. The people who are selected by the public perform different duties to run the official and governmental issues and matters. However, it is very important for the governments to provide the people full freedom to select the politicians and leaders for the administrative works.
Before 1790, only the land owners or lords were eligible to cast the votes to select the members of government. With the passage of time this law continues to persist but after the political and social revolutions in South America this law has been changes by the government. Now all the people who have citizenship can cast the votes to select the leaders and politicians. To make the political situations stable the governments of these countries started to amend the rules and laws for the voting. Gradually, the requirements of white people and land ownership were dropped by the governments to give all the people equal rights. There are many benefits of this amendment. The people who were considered minorities got the rights to participate in the government affairs and politics for the betterment and improvement of the country and the people who are present in these countries.
The South American countries include Argentina, Brazil, Peru and Chile etc. These countries have stable political conditions now days because of democratic laws and rules implemented to give the people equal rights and opportunities to anticipate and participate in the politics and other affairs of these countries. The voting rights in South America are getting stronger because of the great political and social activation and awareness among the people of the countries present in the map of South America.
