The Future of Voting Rights

Open Society Foundations senior policy analyst Julie Fernandes discusses the missing right to vote:

“And I hate to be the ‘slavery person’ up here, but there is a part of this whole conversation about our democracy that has to be looking out for people who historically were, and continue to be, targets for marginalization . . . So it isn’t about political party.  It is about rights, and we do not have a fundamental right to vote in the Constitution, which we should, but we do have a right to nondiscrimination based on race in the Constitution.  That’s my view.”
