Barriers to Voting in Elections: Let Me Count the Ways  

Most of us take our right to vote in elections for granted--so much so that our rate of voter participation in elections is shockingly low. The history of this country, however, reveals how slow we were to share the right to vote broadly. Even today, barriers to voting remain throughout the country. This course will provide an overview of the evolution of the right to vote for our citizens and will include a discussion of some of the reasons those barriers have existed. We will also look at battles being fought today, including the current litigation in New Hampshire over who should have the right to register to vote in our state.
