The Big Problem with the Constitutional Right to Vote Amendment

Professor Scott Lemieux observes:

“The courts . . . are unlikely to protect the right to vote unless the principle has substantial political support.  And that, in the end, may be the best reason to mobilize a constitutional right to vote, despite its limitations.  A new amendment may not do much in theory — but if a movement can increase popular support for the right to vote, it’s worth it in itself.”
