"Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back To Save Democracy"

Apr 29, 2020

In the wake of the US Supreme Court's Common Cause v. Rucho case which ruled that gerrymandering cases are a non-justiciable issue, citizen grassroots efforts have emerged to use other means to prevent partisan gerrymandering and other voter suppression efforts. These locally organized efforts have led to initiative petition victories to create non-partisan redistricting commissions in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Utah, expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act in Idaho, and restored voting rights for former felons in Florida and Alabama. Our guest on this edition of StudioTulsa is journalist David Daley, a senior fellow at Fair Vote, who writes about these efforts in his latest book, "Unrigged: How Americans Are Battling Back to Save Democracy."
