Warren, NJ, November 08, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Tuesday was Election Day, but many of this week’s voters may not have known the ins and outs of the process in which they were participating. “Electoral Dysfunction,” new documentary from Passion River Films takes a humorous approach to clearing up the mysteries surrounding the American voting process.
Mo Rocca (a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning; a panelist on NPR’s hit quiz show Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!; and a former correspondent for The Daily Show) stumbles upon one of the best-kept secrets regarding the right to vote: that it does not exist in the Constitution. The discoveries do not end there, as Mo journeys to Indiana, home to some of the strictest election laws in the country, in the midst of a heated local election.
“Electoral Dysfunction” addresses the shortcomings of the Electoral College, the emerging popular vote advocacy movement, the controversy surrounding Voter ID laws, and other currently contested issues. It also probes less publicized shortcomings in the system, as when Mo encounters a former felon who served a ten-year sentence for the crime of voting. “Electoral Dysfunction” is an eye-opening civics lesson of great contemporary importance.
“Electoral Dysfunction” is currently available on DVD through Passion River Films.
