  1. New Zealand was the first country to grant universal suffrage. Universal suffrage (also universal adult suffrage, general suffrage or common suffrage) consists of the extension of theright to vote to adult citizens (or subjects), though it may also mean extending that right to minors (Demeny voting) and non-citizens. Although suffrage has two necessary components, the right to vote and opportunities to vote, the term universal suffrage is associated only with the right to vote and ignores the frequency that an incumbent government consults the electorate. Where universal suffrage exists, the right to vote is not restricted by belief, wealth, or social status.
