Synopsis

Hacking Democracy is a 2006 documentary film broadcast on HBO and created by producer / directors Russell Michaels and Simon Ardizzone, producer Robert Carrillo Cohen and executive producers Sarah Teale & Sian Edwards. Filmed over three years it documents American citizens investigating anomalies and irregularities with 'e-voting' (electronic voting) systems that occurred during the 2000 and 2004 elections in the U.S.A., especially in Volusia County, Florida. The film investigates the flawed integrity of electronic voting machines, particularly those made by Diebold Election Systems, and the film culminates dramatically in the on-camera hacking of the in-use / working Diebold election system in Leon County, Florida. In 2007 Hacking Democracy was nominated for an Emmy award for Outstanding Investigative Journalism.
