Overview

Stealing Democracy: The New Politics of Voter Suppression by Spencer Overton

"A must-read for anyone who is concerned about our deeply flawed electoral system."—Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
Politicians spew shallow words describing a self-governing American people, who select their representatives. In reality, politicians maintain power by selecting voters. Elected officials and bureaucrats control thousands of election practices—from district boundaries to English-only ballots—that determine political winners and losers. Through real-life stories, Spencer Overton shows how these practices determine policies on issues that shape our lives, and he provides strategies for restoring government by the people. Overton's compelling case is vital to the future of our democracy. With a new afterword.
