"How Ohio Pulled It Off"Directors: Mariana Quiroga, Charla Baker, Matt Kraus How Ohio Pulled It Off is a documentary film chronicling elections from 2004 to 2006 in the bellwether state of Ohio, and a study of the electoral system in principle and practice. Former Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell oversaw a close contest between George W. Bush and John Kerry in 2004, ultimately awarding Ohio's twenty electoral votes to the current Commander-in-Chief. Citizens reported a host of election problems, prompting grassroots efforts to monitor and reform the system. Two years later, voters soundly rejected Blackwell's bid for the Ohio governor's seat, selecting Ted Strickland by a wide margin. As two years of Ohio history unfolds, "How Ohio Pulled It Off" explains the finer points of elections in Ohio and the United States, offering lessons about the Electoral College, voting rules, regulations, and procedures.
