ROCKLAND — The Strand Theatre, 345 Main St., presents a special screening of the new documentary “No Time To Fail” (2022) Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m.

Once invisible to the general public, election administrators are at the center of an ongoing public debate about the integrity of our democracy. “No Time to Fail” is a verite film from Sara Archambault and Margo Guernsey that tells the story of election officials across the state of Rhode Island. Amidst an onslaught of attacks from a sitting president, and the deadly threat of a global pandemic, these public servants work around the clock to secure the vote for their community. This film is an invitation to the American electorate to meet the people whose job it is to uphold the scaffolding of our republic and protect free and fair elections in what emerges as an unprecedented voting adventure.

Running time is 1 hour, 30 minutes. More information and tickets can be found at rocklandstrand.com or (207) 594-0070.
