“[The South] fought, bled, and died in the fiercest battles that won us full access to the ballot,” writes Errin Haines, guest editor of our special issue, The Vote. “For me, to be a southerner is to be a voter, and to be a voter is to champion the rights of all Americans.” In the spring 2024 issue, we look at the vote–from the groundbreaking Voting Rights Act of 1965 to portraits of contemporary poll workers in North Carolina, from the battles we’ve won to those still being waged.
