The Missing Right to Vote: What We’d Get From Amending The Constitution To Guarantee It

Professor Heather Gerken identifies at least one gain from a right-to-vote amendment:

“What an amendment would do is help the courts do a better job doing what they are doing now.  For better or for worse (and probably for worse), the courts have become the de facto referees of election disputes. It’s the Star Wars problem. Like Obi-Wan Kenobi, they are our only hope, the only ones (outside of self-interested politicians) who can step in. But while courts inevitably must resolve these cases, they lack the tools to do so.”
