I Voted? (2016)

Director: Jason Grant Smith
Run time:  77 min.

"Jason Grant Smith, a young independent filmmaker, asks, 'Are we the country we think we are?' in this timely, provocative, and important exploration of America’s voting procedures. His initial interest in the unlikely primary victory of an unknown candidate for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina morphs into a general investigation of current voting systems, which are likely to be vulnerable to error and manipulation. . . . The personable narration and the use of archival images, amusing animation, and stimulating talking-head interviews make this film highly viewable and a valuable study of the most fundamental of our democratic rights."
