U.S. #1249 was issued to remind Americans that “voting is both a privilege and a responsibility. The stamp pictures the American flag in its natural colors and is one of few American issues not to include “U.S.” or “U.S.A” in the design.

Since the Constitution, several amendments have been passed concerning voting rights. These amendments grant that states can’t restrict voting rights that “infringe one’s right to equal protection under the law (14th Amendment), on the basis of race (15th Amendment), sex (19th Amendment), or age concerning people 18 or over (26th Amendment). 
 
Initially, voters had to go to state offices to register to vote, but in the mid-1990s, steps were taken to make registering easier and increase the number of voters. The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 made it mandatory for state governments to make the registration process easier by providing registration services through drivers’ license registration centers, disability centers, schools, libraries, and mail-in registration.
