Voter Suppression and Election Irregularities Motivate Creation of the
OSCAR-nominated, EMMY-winning documentary filmmaker Dorothy Fadiman announces the launch of a media toolkit, the ELECTIONS at RISK Campaign. This online offering includes video clips, posters, and other resources to shed light on voting irregularities in recent elections, including ways to address the increasing challenge to free and fair elections.
ELECTIONS at RISK Website
ELECTIONS at RISK is a constellation of 14 short clips from STEALING AMERICA: Vote by Vote, winner of the Critics Choice Award from the Broadcast Film Critics Association. At the heart of this campaign is a new short film VOTING THEFT in ACTION: An Election Night Saga (10 min.), which documents the statistically improbable discrepancies between "official vote tallies" and the nationwide exit poll numbers during the final hours of a Presidential Election.
The controversial issues addressed on this website include the malfunctioning of electronic voting machines (especially in low-income neighborhoods), vote switching between candidates favoring one party in at least 14 states, and through it all, the silence of the mainstream media. The short film (10 minutes) and the clips (1- 5 minutes each) are available on this website, Facebook and YouTube.
The campaign draws attention to restrictions that affect minorities, students, the elderly and low–income communities while providing resources and tools to help address these problems.
We want to remind Democrats and Republicans, and voters from all parties that our democracy is fragile and that it is we, ourselves, who need to protect voting rights for all Americans. The ELECTIONS at RISK campaign is a wake-up call to prevent, question and investigate voting irregularities.
