The Right to Vote: Is The Amendment Game Worth The Candle?

Professor Heather Gerken evaluates arguments for and against the right-to-vote amendment, concluding:

“It would be wonderful if the Constitution included a robust right to vote.  But given how few resources we have to fight the good fight, I would rather see them directed toward discrete projects with concrete payoffs . . . .  Targeted litigating and politicking seem more likely to bring about the desired results than a full-fledged social movement.”
