Voting Rights Alert #4: The Myth of the Lazy Nonvoter

Dear H-PAD supporters,
Many of you may subscribe to the New York Times online, and have seen this, but if you haven’t, it’s an excellent guide to all the ways the U.S. political system makes it hard to vote—including for students, and how much harder it has gotten in the last few years—including for our students.

“Most Americans want to vote. Many states make it nearly impossible.”
