Mo Rocca On ‘Electoral Dysfunction’
Thursday, August 30th, 2012
For years we’ve been pointing out how our country is actually the Un-United States of America when it comes to our voting system. Different voting rules for different states with thirteen THOUSAND election jurisdictions nationwide.
At the end of the day the voters of our country lose. Now a new documentary Electoral Dysfunction is taking up the cause, featuring the hysterical Mo Rocca.
This morning on our Tumblr we posted a pop-quiz from an op-ed by Rocca that accompanied a New York Times “op-doc,” the first of four clips from the film, about America’s broken voting system.
Which of the following countries does not guarantee its citizens the right to vote? Is it:
(C) The United States
(D) All of the above.
To find out the answer, watch the video.
Electoral Dysfunction will air on PBS in the fall. Stay tuned for more.
