The "people" meant white men who owned property and were Protestant


That was how American states decided in the early years to define the electorate. That was considerably broader than the electorate at the time in England and Scotland, and in that sense, a real step forward, but let's not gloss over what was meant by "people," or that while some states allowed women to vote in the first few decades of our Republic, that all such states later took that away from women, who remained without voting rights for 113 years.
