New Book on How Voting Rights are Suppressed

Stealing Democracy: The New Politics of Voter Supression
Stealing Democracy: The New Politics of Voter Supression is due in bookstores on June 5. Spencer Overton uses stories of real voters to show the need for renewing the provisions of the Voting Rights Act that will expire in 2007, as well as addressing partisan gerrymandering and election administration, felon disenfranchisement rules, photo ID requirements and other practices that exclude voters. LWVUS President Kay J. Maxwell and LWVUS Board member Odetta MacLeish-White are quoted and profiled in this exciting new work. For more information about the book, click here .
