In October 1996, PBS left the press, the pundits, and the presidential hopefuls behind for a rollicking two-night ride on the American campaign trail. VOTE FOR ME -- POLITICS IN AMERICA, the first major television series to explore what it really takes to run for public office, was originally broadcast on October 28 and 29 by PBS stations. Produced by award-winning filmmakers Louis Alvarez, Andrew Kolker, and Paul Stekler, with WETA, Washington, D.C., it's a series that departs from the usual horse race aspect of daily journalism and shows how local culture and customs are reflected in our politics.
