"Imagine a country where the right to vote is not guaranteed by the Constitution, where the candidate with the most votes loses, and where paperwork requirements and bureaucratic bungling disenfranchise millions. You're living in it. If the consequences weren't so serious, it would be funny. Written for readers across the political spectrum who want their vote to count, Electoral Dysfunction is the fact-filled companion to the documentary starring political humorist and commentator Mo Rocca. The book examines an array of topics, including the Founders' decision to omit the right to vote from the Constitution (and the legal system's patchwork response to this omission); the quasi-democratic origins and impact of the Electoral College; the role of partisan officials in running elections; the foul-ups that plague election day; and today's heated battles over voter identification, voter impersonation, and voter fraud"--P. [4] of cover.
