On September 12, 2008 the feature documentary STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote will have three simultaneous No. California Premieres in Bay Area Theatres: The Lumiere in San Francisco; The Camera 10 Cinema in San Jose; The Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley. Social issue, Oscar-nominated, Emmy Award-winning Bay Area Documentary filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman shines a spotlight on the elusive "irregularities" of the last decade’s most egregious U.S. election voting anomalies. She weaves together first-person accounts, extensive research and provocative clips gleaned from the nightly news. Narrated by Peter Coyote.

Since the mid-1970s, exit polls - based on voter's reports of how they just cast their votes - have accurately predicted U.S. election results. Over the last 10 years, that reliability has progressively disappeared. Why?

STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote brings together behind-the-scenes perspectives from the U.S. presidential election of 2004 – plus startling stories from key races in 1996, 2000, 2002 and 2006. Unbiased and nonpartisan, the film sheds light on a decade of vote counts that don't match votes cast – uncounted ballots, vote switching, under-votes and many other examples of election totals that warrant serious investigation.

People who tell their stories include voters who experienced a wide range of problems, including votes flipping from one candidate to another and polls not having enough machines to serve the number of voters. Investigative journalists describe how their reportage on election fraud was sidelined. First-person citizen testimonies speak of waiting in line nine hours to vote. We hear how polling experts’ requests for essential information – such as precinct voting data necessary to examine irregularities – had been rejected, while ballots were being systematically destroyed, making audits impossible.

All opening weekend screenings will have Q and A's after the film:
· San Francisco: The Lumiere 1572 California St.
· San Jose: Camera 12 Cinema 201 S. 2nd St.
· Berkeley: The Shattuck 10 2230 Shattuck Ave.
