Background information on relevant topics, such as misconceptions about immigrant voting rights, the relationship of immigrant voting rights to the women’s suffrage movement, efforts to combat disenfranchisement, quotes from historical thinkers of relevance to immigrant voting rights. Soon we will add articles on the path to citizenship and on the impact of immigrant voters. Like the existing articles, these will be highlighted on the home page. If you have a topic you’d like to see added, please contact me.
Finally, there is a page of links to organizations whose work focuses on closely related issues.
A list of legislation from all relevant states appears on the legislation page, which includes links to the full legislation passed or proposed in each jurisdiction. Each state (and/or city) page also includes links to relevant legislation pages.
