The Hidden History of the War on Voting

Who Stole Your Vote and How to Get It Back



America's number one progressive radio host Thom Hartmann looks at our country's long and troubled voting history, analyzing the disenfranchisement of its citizens, particularly people of color, women, and the poor, and showing what we can do to ensure everyone has a voice in this democracy.

In today's America, only a slim majority of eligible voters register to vote and a large percentage of registered voters don't bother to show up for elections. Is this their responsibility alone, or is it the insidious result of policies made by our elected officials? Thom Hartmann unveils the hidden war on voting in America, offering answers as to why the wealthy elite want to block people from voting, where the idea that only smart people should vote originates, and why convicts aren't allowed to vote. Is voter fraud really that common, or is it just a ploy to make it harder for people to vote? And most importantly, how can we make voting easily accessible to every citizen? With a perspective that stretches all the way to the founding of our republic, Hartmann shows how the war on universal suffrage has been waged for centuries--and is far from over.
