The Right to Vote: A Fight for All Americans

A periodically rotating display of books in the BC Libraries collection, by theme.

As the United States votes this year in a time of crisis, we also honor the centennial anniversary of the 19th Amendment’s ratification. How far have we come in the last 100 years and since the Voting Rights Act of 1965? How must we fight today to ensure all Americans can exercise their right to vote and be counted? What lessons will we learn from the 2020 election? The books showcased here illustrate our progress and failures since the 19th Amendment and propose ways we can fix our voting system.
