Why selective voting?

Only property owners to vote on proposed Potsdam recreation district...so now we are deciding who can vote on what and cutting out the rest of the town and village registered voters? On the next school election will they pick whom they want to be able to vote in that one too? Only parents of school children, maybe? To heck with the rest of the town and village voters. Sounds like a throwback to the old days of only property owners being able to vote, forget about women and minorities. How about we do this for all elections in the entire U.S.? That ought to go over well shouldn't it? Potsdam can claim they started the trend here with their exclusion of part of their voter base on their recreation referendum…should be proud.
