23rd Amendment Ratified (1961): Washington D.C. Residents Voting Rights

#OnThisDay in 1961: Residents of Washington, D.C. were granted the right to vote in U.S. Presidential Elections. The 23rd Amendment extends the right to vote in presidential elections to citizens residing in the District of Columbia. The amendment grants the district electors in the Electoral College as though it were a state, though the district can never have more electors than the least-populous state.

The amendment was passed by Congress (proposed to the states) on June 16, 1960, and ratified March 29, 1961.
