Summary
Language Assistance under the Voting Rights Act: Are Voters Lost in Translation? provides an interesting and unique approach to the problem of translating minority language ballots and evaluating the causes and effects of differences in the translated ballot language. As a whole, this book demonstrates the strong relationship between accessibility, state policy, and the role this has on participation among minority language voters, particularly in the area of direct democracy. This offers insight into the complex relationship that has evolved into the current state of governance across the United States, as well as how covered jurisdictions interact with federally mandated language assistance. By looking at this relationship from a variety of standpoints-including historical and policy analysis, interviews, and statistical analysis-this book shows a new perspective of the translation process and the implications for minority voters and their efficacy.
