Letter writer Joel Rector is wrong, as are all the other people who think they have a constitutional right to vote (“Voting is guaranteed under the Constitution,” Sept. 25). Although there are many phrases, clauses and amendments in the U.S. Constitution concerning not denying the right to vote to certain people, there is nothing in the Constitution that explicitly guarantees anyone the right to vote.
