Himes speaks at One Vote screening in Greenwich

On Sunday, June 3, Connecticut Congressman Jim Himes attended the screening of the award-winning political documentary One Vote at the Greenwich International Film Festival.

Starring Warren Buffet, filmed in five locations on a single day, One Vote captures the stories of diverse American voters on Election Day 2016.

When the film concluded, Himes was asked to speak briefly about his thoughts on the film. “This is such an amazing part of the country,” said Himes, “and we don’t have enough art. We don’t have enough film.”

One Vote follows the struggles that voters, throughout the country, go through because of their local voting laws. “I’ve been in politics for 10 years and I’ve been saying, voter ID is a real problem,” Himes said. “Until I saw those people for who a voter ID really is a huge obstacle [in the film] I never really quite understood exactly what I was saying… A lot of Americans need to see this film.”

After speaking, Himes greeted the cast of One Vote and thanked them for their work. The cast included Dr. Brenda Williams who has registered more than 7,000 to vote and Michael Hiser who works to restore voting rights to felons in Kentucky.
