"This is an immensely valuable and promising project...tackled in a serious and thorough way. This book has a chance to speak to a broad national audience in a clear and accessible manner." -- Jamin Raskin, author of Overruling Democracy
"Democracy for All is the most thoroughgoing exploration we have of non-citizen voting in the United States, past and present. The issues raised by Hayduk's book - particularly at a time of high rates of immigration - ought to inform public debate in communities across the nation." -- Alexander Keyssar, Professor of History and Social Policy, Harvard University, and author of The Right to Vote
"This passionately argued and thoroughly documented work is the best single study of whether to grant electoral rights to immigrant non-citizens. Hayduk carefully, clearly, and compellingly dissects the past, present, and future of one of our era's most important civil rights challenges." -- John Mollenkopf, Distinguished Professor of Political Science, City University Graduate Center
"Millions of long-term non-citizen residents abide in the United States without any formal representation in its democratic political system. Hayduk provides a thorough, and much-needed brief outlining the history, contemporary status, and arguments for (and against) non-citizen voting in the U.S. An excellent source for an important question in American politics today." -- Michael Jones-Correa, Department of Government, Cornell University
