Electoral Dysfunction

Dear Readers, 

Here's the trailer to a great-looking documentary on the electoral college in America, explaining why nobody cares about your vote if you live in California, say, or New York. 

Apparently, seven or nine or so states really count in the presidential election, and if you live in one of those states, you sometimes wish you didn't because of the robo-calls and letters and lapel-grabbing conversations at the supermarket.

This is a MUCH better answer than what Madame L wrote in reply to a Dear Reader's question about the electoral college.

Apparently the whole documentary has already been showing on various public TV stations, including the one in Madame L's area, and will be shown soon in others.



Madame L

P.S. But vote anyway.
