FRONTLINE: How Voting Laws Have Changed

Lesson Duration

From PBS LearningMedia

“Examine data about the voting rights laws that most impact Americans’ access to the ballot box and how they’ve changed across the country in recent years, in this interactive from FRONTLINE: Ballot Watch. Voting laws influence who can vote and when and how they cast their ballots. This interactive provides a state-by-state analysis of voting laws as they pertain to early voting, felons, absentee voting, and voter ID requirements. It compares the situation in 2010, when many states began introducing more restrictive voter bills, to that in 2014. An update with data and analysis from 2015 is coming soon. This resource is part of the FRONTLINE Collection.”
