Call It Democracy | 2004
A historical look at the electoral process in the United States that goes far beyond the extreme controversy of the 2000 election, and the Bush v. Gore Supreme Court ruling. This chronicle presents a multi-layered perspective on voting rights, election reform and the unresolved electronic voting controversies that are threatening to undermine confidence in the democratic system of United States. Nearly four years in the making, "Call It Democracy" begins when the vote counting stopped and mainstream media coverage ended following the 2000 election. Interviews with respected academics, Congressional representatives and ranking judges outline the reality of what it means to vote in the U.S. today.
