Movies on the Grass: 'Electoral Dysfunction' Sept. 14
Join us for the second film in the Movies on the Grass Series, "Electoral Dysfunction," at 8 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14, at Coffman Commons, Hale Library's south lawn.
This film focuses on the role of the electoral college and discusses voter ID laws. While other films have examined narrow aspects of our electoral system, "Electoral Dysfunction" is the first documentary project to use humor and wit to take an irreverent — but nonpartisan — look at voting in America. The film helps spark national dialogue on the steps ordinary citizens can take to ensure that every vote counts.
Bring a lawn chair or blanket and a sweatshirt.
Representatives from the League of Women Voters will be facilitating a follow-up discussion about voting in America at a UFM class, "Voting in America." Please join us. There is not a class fee required but registration is needed for room accommodations. You do not need to view the film to attend this class but it would be helpful for the discussion.
