Storyline

'Electoral Dysfunction' uses irreverent humor to illuminate how voting works - and doesn't work - in America. Hosted by Mo Rocca (a Correspondent for CBS News, a panelist on NPR's 'Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me!' and a former Correspondent for 'The Daily Show'), the film is structured as a road trip that begins when Mo makes an eye-opening discovery: The Constitution does not guarantee the right to vote, putting America in the company of Libya, Iran and Indonesia. Mo explores the battle over voter fraud and voter I.D.; searches for the Electoral College; critiques ballot design with Todd Oldham; and encounters experts and activists across the political spectrum who offer commentary on why our voting system is broken and how it can be fixed.

Optimistic, Educational, Inspiring
11 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

The creators of this film impress me immensely with their optimism and dedication. They attempt nothing less than saving American democracy. To that end, they take an inclusive, light-hearted, but deeply earnest approach to explaining not just the intricacies of American democracy, but threats to the integrity of our voting system.

The directors hope to convince Republicans and Democrats alike of the need to reform several aspects of the US electoral system. They go to great pains to show the issue from both parties' sides. I wonder if there is any hope at all that this effort can succeed. Republicans at the moment are attempting power grabs throughout the country to subvert the electoral process in their favor.
