Abstract

Political rights, such as the right to vote, may be distinguished from civil liberties (freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, religious freedom, the right to bear arms, the right to security against unreasonable searches and seizures, security against double jeopardy and excessive bail, the right to trial by jury, security against self-incrimination, and other rights mentioned in the Bill of Rights), and from civil rights. The term civil rights refers to rights to employment and to accommodations in hotels, restaurants, common carriers, and other places of public accommodation and resort.
