Praise

This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to stop spinning their wheels and actually fix the dystopia that grips American politics.” 

—Josh Silver, cofounder and director, RepresentUs

“Douglas is one of the most important voting-rights experts in the country today. In Vote for US he deftly chronicles how we can make it easier for every American to vote. An inspiring, innovative, and must-read book about how to take back our democracy.

—Ari Berman, senior reporter at Mother Jones and author of Give Us the Ballot

Cogent, well-written, and filled with inspiring stories, Vote for US should be required reading for those who feel that our democracy is broken. With this book, Douglas takes his place at the forefront of a growing intellectual effort to chronicle and strengthen the emerging nonpartisan Democracy Movement sweeping across the United States. Change is possible, and, as Douglas powerfully proves, it is already on its way.”

—Frances Moore Lappé and Adam Eichen, authors of Daring Democracy

“It is easy to find books that recount the numerous ways the United States election system fails, but it is far harder to find thoughtfully considered blueprints for success. In Vote for US, Joshua A. Douglas pairs expertly interpreted explanations of our voting system with compelling stories of those fighting to make it better. This book is sure to become an invaluable tool for anyone who cares about the progress of American democracy.”

—Jessica Huseman, reporter, ProPublica

“Douglas’s ability to tell the stories of real Americans working to improve our electoral process paints a hopeful picture of our democracy. This inspiring book will leave readers optimistic about the strength of our country and the values for which it stands.”

—Chris Carson, president, League of Women Voters of the United States

“This book is a true Profiles in Courage of real-life democracy champions: ordinary citizens who worked in extraordinary ways to improve elections in their communities. It is required reading for anyone seeking to do their part to ensure our country fulfills its constitutional promise of one person, one vote.”

—Jocelyn Benson, secretary of state of Michigan

“A breathtakingly comprehensive overview of some of the obstacles we face in our democracy today. . . . leaving readers with plenty of reason to be hopeful and optimistic about the future. For those seeking to understand the modern-day challenges and voter-suppression efforts we are wrestling, this book is a must-read.”

—Kristen Clarke, president and executive director, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law

“Douglas tells the vitally important but largely overlooked story of how grassroots activists, state and local politicians, and everyday Americans have played an important role in the adoption of positive voting reforms in this country. A must-read for everyone seeking to make our democracy more inclusive and dynamic than ever before.”

—Franita Tolson, voting-rights expert and professor of law, University of Southern California Gould School of Law
