In a democracy candidates compete to draw voters to the polls by campaigning with messages composed in a language that the voter finds familiar and even banal. If familiarity encourages voting, could prohibition or restriction of voting result when discourse makes politics seem to be reserved for the few? A political discourse that was longwinded, supercilious or grandiloquent might do the job. No independent state confining ultimate authority to elected officials made the franchise available to all adults until Norway in 1915, and only after 1776 did officials chosen by even relatively broad franchises slowly displace hereditary rulers, usurpers, or privileged minorities controlling nearly all earlier polities. Examination of earlier states reveals whether any cross-linguistic discourse is common to them as well as to later dictatorships, such as the former Soviet Union, much more similar in their technology, industry, education and urbanization to contemporary democracies. The stark contrast between discourse before democracy and the discourse of democracy highlights the contribution to voting rights made by electoral politicians whose communicative style is so often disparaged.
