FLICK FILOSOPHER
"throwing elections is nothing new, a point the film doesn't shy from making: what is new is the ease with which it is being done, the scale on which it is happening, and the so-far near-absolute apathy with which it is being greeted by the electorate any concerned citizen should be outraged."

POLITICO.COM
"No recent film comes closer to showing the horrifying potential glitches in the electoral process...a must-see for anyone interested in the future of democracy and the ugly truth behind voting irregularities"

2. Kicking this- I posted this yesterday as well.
It's too late to do anything about the machines- but not to late to educate everyone so we are ready for action when they rig them again.
