Historian Carol Anderson — author of "One Person, No Vote" — walks us through the timeline of truly free and fair elections in the United States, a period she says lasted from the passage of the Voting Rights Act in 1965 until a fateful Supreme Court decision in 2013. That triggered a wave of voter ID laws, voter roll purges, and other tactics that Anderson says come out of the Jim Crow playbook for voter suppression.
