No Time to Fail Documentary Film Premiere

August 11, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Once invisible to the general public, election administrators are at the center of an ongoing public debate about the integrity of our democracy. By the People is a verite film that tells the story of election officials across the state of Rhode Island. Amidst an onslaught of attacks from a sitting President, and the deadly threat of a global pandemic, these public servants work around the clock to secure the vote for their community. This film is an invitation to the American electorate to meet the people whose job it is to uphold the scaffolding of our republic and protect free and fair elections in what emerges as an unprecedented voting adventure.
