Event Details

Hacking Democracy is a documentary film by Simon Ardizzone and Russell Michaels, made for HBO in 2006. It documents anomalies and irregularities with electronic voting systems that occurred during the 2004 election, especially in Volusia County, Florida, and investigates the integrity of electronic voting machines.

The documentary follows Bev Harris and Andy Stephenson, activists for Black Box Voting, as they attempt to discover whether Diebold voting machines could be tampered with and if their use in the previous election had produced any irregularities. During the course of the documentary, multiple methods of tampering with the votes are shown.

This free screening, co-organised by FIPR and the Open Rights Group, will be followed by a panel discussion with both co-directors and an MP from each of the three main political parties.
