Electoral Dysfunction

Electoral Dysfunction

After discovering that the Constitution does not guarantee the right to vote, political humorist Mo Rocca sets out on an irreverent road trip to see how voting works in America. Rocca - a correspondent for 'CBS Sunday Morning,' panelist on NPR's 'Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me! ' and former correspondent for 'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart' - heads to Indiana, home to some of the strictest election laws in the country, and meets one Republican and one Democrat who take him inside their efforts to get out every vote. As he progresses on his journey, he searches for the Electoral College; critiques ballot design with Todd Oldham; investigates the debate over voter I.D. and voter fraud; and explores the case of a former felon who was sentenced to ten years in prison - for the crime of voting. Eye-opening, engaging, and nonpartisan, ELECTORAL DYSFUNCTION is for voters across the political spectrum who want their votes to count. TVPG
