The right to vote is something that many of us took for granted – until recent events showed us otherwise. This graphic story of voting in America covers the story of voting including who could and who couldn’t, how those who couldn’t gained the right to do so, and suppression tactics that make the right to vote a struggle.
Based on Snyder’s 2017 book, this graphic edition explains how to recognize tyranny and what to do about it. Illustrated with drawings and historical photographs that often show without telling.
