As the midterm election approaches, we continue our coverage of issues important to American voters. On today’s episode, Patty takes up voter suppression with Carol Anderson, author of One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying our Democracy. Throughout the conversation, they cover issues like apathy among young voters, voter disillusionment, the problem with photo ID requirements, the concept of “moral turpitude” and disenfranchisement in Alabama, the myth of voter fraud, and the current situation in Georgia, where “you have the Secretary of State concerned that registered voters will vote.”
Carol Anderson is the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University. She is the author of White Rage: The Unspoken Truth of Our Racial Divide (Bloomsbury, 2016) and One Person, No Vote: How Voter Suppression is Destroying our Democracy (Bloomsbury, 2018).
