With the presidential primary season in full swing, the University of Memphis' Cecil
C. Humphreys School of Law will present a documentary film, Uncounted: The New Math of American Elections, followed immediately by a panel discussion, both dealing with election fraud. The
two-hour event begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, February 10, in Rooms 248-252 of the law school,
3715 Central Avenue. It is free and open to the public.
Uncounted explores the vulnerability of election machinery and the election system to fraud,
glitches, and other flaws that can change the outcome of elections. The film's Emmy
award-winning director, David Earnhardt, will answer questions after the film.
“The movie raises some compelling, sometimes frightening, points about how vulnerable
our elections are to fraud, computer glitches, and misleading practices," said U of
M law professor Steve Mulroy, an election law expert and moderator of the event. “Its
message is especially timely as we head into the 2008 presidential election."
