FairVote Launches Upgrade Democracy Video Contest!

FairVote is launching its Upgrade Democracy Video Contest, and we're giving everyone a chance to flex their creativity by making a short digital video that answers the question, "if you could change anything you wanted about elections, what would our democracy look like?"

Contest entrants will upload their videos to YouTube where FairVote staff will choose a slate of nominees, and winners will be chosen by celebrity judges like filmmaker Richard Linklater (School of Rock, A Scanner Darkly), political guru Donna Brazile, and The Daily Show's Dan Bakkedahl...and many more!

Cash prizes will be awarded in various categories, and the first prize winner will get a trip to Washington, DC to receive their award at FairVote's Claim Democracy 2007 Conference on November 10, 2007. Click over to www.UpgradeDemocracy.com for all the details!
