The Mid-Term Elections and Voting Rights

Email a Friend
With a high number of retirements and vulnerable incumbents, the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate hangs in the balance this election cycle.

Nation contributing writer Ari Berman sorts through the results of the midterm elections. He also looks at the Supreme Court decision undermining the Voting Rights Act, as well as the ways state laws restricting voting have impacted the midterm election. Berman is an Investigative Journalism Fellow at the Nation Institute and at work on a book about voting rights since 1965.
