From the Ballot to the Bully Pulpit: Books on Presidents and Elections

It’s easy to get swept up in the current election cycle and its attendant outrages and clashes, and this year is no different. There’s so much more to read about the U.S. Presidents than staid official biographies. This booklist will provide you with multiple entries into the subject of elections, especially presidential ones, and the subject of voting in the United States.
