About the Movie

After making the eye-opening discovery that the right to vote is missing from the Constitution, political humorist Mo Rocca sets out on a road trip to see how voting works - and doesn't work - in America. Irreverent, engaging and nonpartisan, Electoral Dysfunction is for voters across the political spectrum who want their votes to count. Set against the backdrop of the historic 2008 election, the film is hosted by Mo Rocca, a correspondent for "CBS Sunday Morning," a panelist on NPR's "Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me!," and a former correspondent for "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Electoral Dysfunction" pulls off an admirable trick: It's pleasant. It treats Democrats and Republicans respectfully, and its humor, with the comic Mo Rocca as guide, is closer to Garrison Keillor than to Michael Moore. – David DeWitt, New York Times, Sep 20, 2012

Rotten: Mo Rocca's faux-disingenuous tone and nonstop jocularity dominate the docu to quickly grating effect. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Sep 20, 2012

Fresh: A timely look at an important issue that's getting more hotly contested every month. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Sep 19, 2012

Rotten: Just a voting-for-dummies primer. – Nick Schager, Village Voice, Sep 18, 2012

Should be required viewing in all civics classes!

We've got to get the entire electorate and our lawmakers to watch it too. This is a black and white - issues on the table - easy to understand presentation of the problems with the USA election process. And it's entertaining!!! Watch it and tell your friends.

Electoral Dysfunction

I saw this on PBS a few days ago. It was very creative and educational concerning voting and the electoral college. I laughed out loud at times, especially when middle school children displayed outraged by the system currently in place. There is a twist at the end, so stay tuned! I highly recommend it!

Great educational tool

Definitely will be showing this to my high school government classes!!
