FROM THIS EPISODE

America’s constitutional democracy began by restricting voting rights to property-owning white men. As the “privilege” has expanded for 200 years, so have efforts to limit turnout and manipulate outcomes. Voter ID, purges and closure of polling places target African Americans, Latinos and college students. Congressional district boundaries have been drawn to favor one party over the other.
