The Mayflower Compact is an important piece of American History because it was a step towards self-government in America. The Mayflower Compact stated that the adult males who would settle at Plymouth, not including servants, would have the right to vote on issues. The adult male settlers would gather at town-meetings and would make their own laws through open discussion. This was the first democratic government established in the colonies. The Mayflower Compact stood as a blueprint for other groups who came to settle the Americas.

The Mayflower Compact stated that the Puritans would follow the rules of the government. They didn't arrive where they originally intended so the rules of England did not apply. The Compact was created to assure the half of the ship's passengers who were not Puritans that the government of the colony would be elected, not imposed on them.

Of the 102 passengers aboard, only about 52 of them were actually "pilgrims" from Leiden who were leaving to the New World in hopes of religious freedom. The other half consisted of passengers of varying beliefs and ethics. It was decided that the signing of the Mayflower Compact would ease tensions and help colonists work together. One of the most important provisions of the Mayflower Compact was that a governor would be democratically elected, unlike the way it was done in either England's monarchy or Leiden's church congregation. Although it was brief and rather unconventional, the democratic nature of the document combined with the fact that it was the first such document signed in America makes the Mayflower Compact one of the important documents in U.S. history. It is sometimes compared to the Declaration of Independence and considered one of its inspirations.
