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. He heads to Indiana, home to some of the strictest election laws in the country, and meets two feisty Hoosiers - Democrat Mike Marshall and Republican Dee Dee Benkie - who take him inside their efforts to get out every vote. As he progresses on his journey, Mo searches for the Electoral College; investigates the heated battle over Voter ID and voter fraud; critiques ballot design with Todd Oldham; and explores the case of a former felon who was sentenced to ten years in prison—for the crime of voting. 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." The film was written, produced and directed by David Deschamps, Leslie D. Farrell and Bennett Singer, whose collective credits include multiple Emmy, Peabody and duPont-Columbia awards.
