Locked Out

Felon Disenfranchisement and American Democracy

Jeff Manza and Christopher Uggen

Studies in Crime and Public Policy

Locked Out exposes felon disenfranchisement as one of the most important, yet little known, threats to the health of American democracy today. It reveals the centrality of racial factors in the origins of these laws, and their impact on politics, election outcomes, and public policy. Marshalling the first real empirical evidence on the issue to make a case for reform, the authors' path-breaking analysis will inform all future policy and political debates on the laws governing the political rights of criminals.
