The Electoral College is not the sexiest subject for a movie. But the election of 2000 put it on the front page for a while, because the outcome was more than a little dubious. And 2000 wasn’t the first time there were some doubts about our voting process. There’s the 1960 Kennedy vs. Nixon campaign, George Wallace’s attempted manipulation of the Electoral College in 1968 and prior elections when the popular vote did not prevail. Matt Kohn’s film is an illuminating, engrossing, passionate, unpreachy and non-partisan look at the longstanding need to address issues like voters’ rights and election reform. The interviewees include Greg Palast, Vincent Bugliosi, Alan Dershowitz, Former Senator Birch Bayh and many others. Some it, frankly, will blow your mind.

Kim Alexander - the California Voter's Foundation (focus on electronic voting)
