As we enter into an election year where nothing less than the fate of our republic is at stake, this book is an important read for anyone interested in our politics."--Hillary Rodham Clinton
All of the challenges facing our democracy today... problems with the electoral college, gerrymandering, voter suppression, lack of representation, voter disinterest, citizens who cannot vote, lobbying, money...lead to two questions: why doesn't every vote really count? And what are we going to do about it?
Author Elizabeth Rusch examines some of the more problematic aspects of our government but, more importantly, offers ways for young people to fix them.
