Why I'm in Favor of a Right-to-Vote Amendment but Against Amending the Constitution

Heather K. Gerken

The DNC Executive Committee has just endorsed the idea that we should amend the Constitution to add a right to vote.  Today I posted on the question over on Rick Hasen’s Election Law Blog.  As I explain there, I’m entirely in favor of a constitutional right to vote but against amending the Constitution to add it.  I also have a new paper offering a more fully develop argument as to why the amendment game is not worth the candle.
