Lined Up to Vote in Missouri (Clip 4 of 5)

This fourth clip from Election Day returns to the poor neighborhood in St. Louis, Missouri to show more people's experiences waiting in line to vote on November 2, 2004. This clip is related to the Election Day lesson plan. The Fair Election International's report pointed out that low-income areas of St. Louis had fewer machines and poll workers than wealthier areas. Students should discuss the implications of Fair Election International's findings.
