The 24th amendment is about the citizens of the U.S. rights to vote for who they want as their President, Vice President, Senator, or Representatives in Congress, shall not be denied by the U.S. or any state for the failure to pay any poll tax or other tax. This amendment was proposed by the 87 Congress in joint resolution which was approved by the Senate on March 27, 1962 and by the House of Representatives on August 27, 1962. The right to vote wasnt established in the U.S. Constitution where it was ratified in 1787. At a ceromony in 1964, President Lyndon Johnson said, " There can be no one too poor to vote." Thanks to the 24th amendment the right of the U.S. citizens to freely cast their votes has been secured.
