Electoral Dysfunction

"Lighthearted, colorful, nonpartisan..." The New York Times

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. He 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 ID and voter fraud; and explores the case of a former felon who was sentenced to 10 years in prison — for the crime of voting.
