The new battleground for voting rights

Tammy Kaousias discusses the book Give Us the Ballot: The Modern Struggle for Voting Rights in America by Ari Berman, which details the struggle and increasingly intense backlash against the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Kaousias says “this struggle is going on right now, and each one of us is a living participant and creator of this historical struggle.” Kaousias was appointed to the Knox County Election Commission as an Election Commissioner in the 2013–2015 term. Her legal work includes the area of restoration of rights for those with criminal records and advising candidates on qualification issues.
