P.O.V.

Election Day

Aired Thursday, July 3 at 10:00 p.m. on CPTV

Forget the pie charts, color-coded maps and hyperventilating pundits. What’s the street-level experience of voters in today’s America? In a triumph of documentary storytelling, “Election Day” combines 12 stories — shot simultaneously on November 2, 2004, from dawn until long past midnight — into one. Factory workers, ex-felons, harried moms, Native-American activists and diligent poll watchers, from South Dakota to Florida, take the process of democracy into their own hands. The result: an entertaining, inspiring and sometimes unsettling tapestry of citizens determined on one fateful day to make their votes count. A co-production of Independent Television Service (ITVS). Director: Katy Chevigny. Producers: Maggie Bowman and Dallas Brennan Rexer. visit the website...
