City police do not simply arrest local residents; sometimes, they patrol looking for outsiders. On these and many other policy issues, however, when local elected officials look to the general population for guidance, they tend to care principally about the views held by the people eligible to vote for them.

This new book examines the actual politics of voting in the United States and shows how voting rights can empower minority groups. It is not widely known that non-citizens currently vote in local elections in Maryland and in Chicago, nor that over the last decade campaigns to expand the franchise the non-citizens have been launched in at least a dozen other jurisdictions from coast to coast.

Democracy for All examines the politics and practices of noncitizen voting in the United States, chronicling the rise and fall - and re-emergence - of immigrant voting in the . In addition to making the case for noncitizen voting, this book takes a close look at the politics of and actors in recent campaigns that successfully reestablished noncitizen voting, others that failed, and. ones that are currently underway. Democracy for All explores the prospects for a truly universal suffrage in America.

Comments to eBook Democracy for All: Restoring Immigrant Voting Rights in the U.S.

This is the quintessential book on noncitizen voting. Hayduk's research is unparalleled and his writing is eloquent and clear. As the movement to restore voting rights for noncitizens (in local elections) continues to gain momentum, this book will inform policymakers, researchers, students, and the public about this issue. This is indeed the authoritative text on this subject. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in immigrant voting rights or is looking for a persuasive work on progressive politics/inclusive democracy. I used this book for my own research and it was extremely helpful.

The premise is all illegal aliens should have the right to vote.

I bought the book to see if there were any legitimate reason why this should be so.

There was none presented other than the deafening tones of the Internationale.

Sadly, this is the tune sung by Obama, most Democrats who favor personal power over betterment of country, and all members of La Raza.

It is a sad commentary that so many of our votes are now being exercised in some precincts by those who wrongfully do so - sort of "vote stealing", right along with the welfare, health care and other rights that should go only to citizens and lawful residents in my humble opinion.
