One Person, One Vote?

A feature-length documentary examining the history of the Electoral College with a focus on how race and slavery shaped the voting process.

One Person, One Vote? is the first-ever documentary to examine the contentious––but little known––history and current debates surrounding the Electoral College in the lead up to the Presidential 2020 election. The film looks at the Electoral College, perhaps the least understood aspect of our democratic process, in all its complexity, with a particular focus on the role of slavery and race, by spotlighting key moments in its 230+-year history up through the present moment.
