Lisa Cordileone uses an appropriate pace and cadence in narrating this accessible and highly informed audiobook. She does a fine job navigating the thickets of politics and partisanship, and nicely captures the author's engaged reportorial voice. She also takes the right tone--explanatory yet interrogative--for a text that spans the centuries, with excellent sections on the Know Nothings and gerrymandering, as well as backstories on the passing of amendments on voting issues. A number of proposals for changing the Electoral College are put forward. But the author stops short of endorsing any of the various suggestions for drastic change. Her focus is to invigorate the process--to prod folks to the polls. This audiobook provides a primer on ways to get out the vote. A.D.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
