On PBS tomorrow at 10 p.m., POV will broadcast “Election Day,” a film by Katy Chevigny that combines 11 stories – shot simultaneously on November 2, 2004, from dawn until long past midnight – into one. A segment of the documentary highlights felon disenfranchisement with formerly incarcerated New York City resident Leon Batts who just regained his right to vote. Preparing to cast his first ballot, Batts sees his vote as one representing all individuals denied the right because of a felony conviction. But Batts finds casting a vote more problematic than he anticipated.
