The Disenfranchised Population

Jeff Manza, Christopher Uggen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Chapters 1 and 2 endeavored to describe and analyze the origins of modern felon disenfranchisement laws, as well as highlight the peculiarities of the American case. This chapter now asks who these disenfranchised citizens are. How many are there? How and when are their rights restricted? When are they restored? And do the laws have a disproportionate racial impact today?.
