The Battle Over Voting Rights in the United States

August 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

$35

The original US Constitution left voting eligibility and the voting process largely to each state. Since then, there have been federal laws and constitutional amendments designed to protect and expand the right to vote. Since the Presidential election of 2020, several states have enacted or are considering voting changes intended to provide greater voting security. This movement has generated a debate over whether these changes are for greater security or to restrict the right to vote. This has led to proposals at the federal level to protect voter rights and expand voter access. We will examine the Constitutional issues associated with these election process proposals at the federal and state levels of government.

Class will have the opportunity to join the instructor in viewing the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum on Main Street traveling exhibition “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America” at the Monmouth Museum on Brookdale’s Lincroft campus after the September 14th class.
