Does voting make us free?

Was the country any more free after women, blacks and non-property owners gained the right to to vote? Certainly more people were "free to vote," but the main thing that expanding the franchise accomplishes is to give more people the power to legally initiate coercion. That's not a power I want anyone to have.
