Do your homework on the whole ballot.

Can you name the candidates running for president? Easy. Can you name the candidates running for your state legislator? City council? Maybe not.

Now hear this — Vulcan Productions and Show of Force are unleashing WE THE VOTERS, a collection of short films that offers quirky takes on the issues that define our generation. WE THE VOTERS is a one-stop, non-partisan resource that’ll spark interesting conversations and help you make informed decisions about the issues that matter most.
