Vote for Us: How to Take Back Our Elections and Change the Future of Voting
ISBN: 9781633885103, Prometheus Books, $18.00
In contrast to the anxiety surrounding our voting system, with stories about voter suppression and manipulation, there are actually quite a few positive initiatives toward voting rights reform. Professor Joshua A. Douglas examines these encouraging developments in this inspiring book about how regular Americans are working to take back their democracy, one community at a time. Unusually accessible for a lay audience and thoroughly researched, this book gives anyone fed up with our current political environment the ideas and tools necessary to affect change in their own communities.
