Reviews
"Jenkins's rousing work will inspire students to educate themselves on the issues--and, when the time comes, to vote early and often."--School Library Journal - STARRED review
"This is a great year to brush up voting rights, especially the laws surrounding distance voting, and this book is a great start."--GeekMom
"Written with a progressive tone, this work's clear factual nature makes it a worthy read for anyone across the political spectrum..."--Library Journal
"A panoptic history of the vote that breaks down everything from gerrymandering to Americans for Prosperity's dark influence, Drawing the Vote is a great pick for both adults and young Americans who want to understand what it means to be a voter."--Shelf Awareness
"The exposition and Lacker's simple but energetic illustrations combine to pack valuable information on each page, while making even complex issues (such as the racism of white suffragists who fought for the 19th Amendment) easy to follow. Suited best to younger readers new to the topic, Jenkins's work lays out the high-stakes history clearly and succinctly."--Publishers Weekly
