    America Votes! Challenges to Modern Election Law and Voting Rights, Fourth Edition

    Watergate brought us the modern era of campaign finance regulation. Government by the consent of the governed has become government by the consent of the rich. After Citizens United, dark money has become the currency for political engagement. At the same time, the Supreme Court in Shelby County ushered in a return to limits on access to registration and voting. The Supreme Court also continues to struggle to define unconstitutional gerrymandering. America Votes!, Fourth Edition confronts these issues.
