Your Vote Matters

Voter Suppression coverQuite apart from the banality of our two political parties it would be so much less stressful if America could hold reasonably accurate, fair and open elections. Why don't we? Tova Wang tackles part of this problem in The Politics of Voter Suppression: Defending and Expanding Americans' Right To Vote (Cornell University Press/The Century Foundation, 2012). Her arguments are not unreasonable but in several areas I question her logic. On electronic voting, for example, I think she's missed the point that precisely because there's no evidence it's such a serious potential crime. Nevertheless, we share important common ground... and, indeed, I suspect there is greater scope for bipartisan agreement on voting processes than she may realize. Total runtime fifty four minutes. Pacta sunt servanda.
