NASHVILLE, TN (November 6, 2007) -- UNCOUNTED: The New Math of American Elections exposes a threat to the core of our democracy - our right to vote. This feature-length documentary tells about what Americans are doing and can do to make certain every vote counts.

UNCOUNTED is now available on DVD. The film's theatrical premiere will take place November 12 at the historic Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Tennessee.

Theatrical screenings of UNCOUNTED are being scheduled throughout the country through Brave New Theatres. If you are interested in hosting a screening, you can get more information at http://www.uncountedthemovie.com/screenings.html .

"UNCOUNTED tells the shocking yet true story of how votes are stolen in America," said producer/director David Earnhardt. This bold new film, by Emmy award-winning Earnhardt, exposes how voters were cheated during the 2004 and 2006 elections - and why it is likely to happen again in 2008. In factual and logical ways, a variety of computer, statistical, and election experts show how the unethical and illegal manipulation of the vote can change the outcome of every election - whether on a local, state, or national level.

"Very powerful. Clear and succinct. This film is urgent viewing for those who care about democracy and the integrity of the electoral process."

UNCOUNTED reveals stories that didn't make the headlines, stories that will leave viewers outraged by the ways the American election system is manipulated:
  • Clint Curtis, a Florida computer programmer, was directed by his employer to create software for voting machines that would "flip" votes.
  • In Emery County, Utah, Bruce Funk, the elected County Clerk was unceremoniously locked out of his office by the county commission after he complained of security flaws in the Diebold manufactured voting machines the county uses.
  • Diebold is also at the center of Californian Steve Heller's tale of election malfeasance. While working as a temp at a law office, Heller found out Diebold was using illegal uncertified software in their voting machines.
UNCOUNTED also tells the story of Athan Gibbs, an accountant by training, who wanted passionately for votes to be counted in a verifiable way. Gibbs found a cost-effective way to do so. He and the vote counting software he created were gaining a following among Members of Congress before his unexpected death in 2004.


"Uncounted explores the disquiet many American voters feel about the health of their electoral system and explains why they are absolutely right to feel unnerved."

Andrew Gumbel, Author & Journalist, "Steal This Vote"


"The release of UNCOUNTED is timely," said Earnhardt. "Congress is right now considering legislation that would help safeguard the integrity of the vote," he added. "I hope UNCOUNTED will cause Americans to question whether their vote really counts, and then inspire them to make certain their vote does count."

Earnhardt is a producer/director of 30 years and a former broadcast executive. He is a winner of both Emmy and Iris awards. A national documentary on children's rights, a biographical documentary about jazz legend Helen Humes, and a comedy special featuring an up-and-coming Jay Leno are among Earnhardt's many credits.

"Election manipulation rarely even makes a top ten issues list," said Earnhardt. "But think about it, if your vote doesn't count, then nothing else really matters."

"A vital and important work ... Uplifting, encouraging, optimistic..."
