Even his outspoken father, Pap, vows to stop voting because a freed slave is able to vote (Twain 34). When Huck is confronted by the idea of running away with Jim, he accepts. Although everyone will “call [Huck] a low-down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum,” it does not matter to him because he will keep his word (55).
