In class today, we watched the movie “Recount” about the presidential election in America in 2000. During the counting of the votes many elderly from Florida though that they had voted wrong because of the ballot. Some votes where also dismissed because of old equipment. The movie addressed a lot of interesting political aspects and they went to extreme extents to have make recounts of the votes.

Before I watched this movie I knew some about what happened in 2000 and about American politics. But I learned a lot during the movie. The whole voting and general election process is very different from the one I am used to in Norway, but the movie gave me a better overview of the American system.
