This issue of The Reference Shelf looks at some of the best American journalism and writing on the topic of voting rights. Sections present articles on subjects ranging from convict disenfranchisement, voting and race, and the challenges of voting in urban versus rural areas. This issue pays special attention to the debate over voter fraud and voting security and how recent allegations of voter fraud have been used to justify new voter restrictions in many states. Other topics covered include voter ID requirements, voting and transportation for the elderly, and the debate over online voting.

This volume begins with a preface; a brief history of American voting rights, the suppression and security of voting throughout American history, and the major issues in the ongoing voting rights debate. Voting Rights includes articles, documents, and other literary works that fall into five topics:

  1. Verifying the Votes
  2. Access to the Franchise
  3. Electoral Crime in America
  4. Voter Suppression
  5. New Developments in the Voting Rights Debate

Together, this information provides thoughtful, comprehensive coverage of voting rights and how the discussions surrounding it have come to be such pressing debates in modern times.
