Chapter 1. For the People: Our American Democracy
Chapter 2. Defending Our Democracy: Building Partnerships to Protect America’s Elections
Markus Frost (Editor)
Series: American Political, Economic, and Security Issues
Chapter 1 reports on the mechanics of our democracy—access to voting, running for office, holding government accountable— which have all undergone radical changes in recent years, and these changes have tended to restrict the rights of eligible voters to vote. It has made the voices of the wealthy and powerful so loud that they can drown out the voices of ordinary people. It is essential that our democracy works and the voices of all our citizens, rich and poor, young and old, are heard and heard equally.
Election security is a national security issue and it must transcend party politics because it requires a unified effort to protect America’s elections as discussed in chapter 2.
