Each evening following the documentary, THE PEOPLE AND THE POWER GAME features a Voters Forum to evaluate the performance of government and to discuss potential reforms for making our democracy work better. Taped in the historic Lyndon Baines Johnson room in the U.S. Capitol, the Voters Forum gathers a small panel of experienced public officials and experts together with a group of two dozen voters carefully selected from across the country to represent the voting public. Participants include: New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley (D), Maine Senator Bill Cohen (R), ABC News Nightline Correspondent Chris Bury and former White House Counsel Lloyd Cutler.
