SWING VOTE
One man gets the unprecedented opportunity to recast his damaged and uncountable absentee ballot and single-handedly decide the outcome of an electorally deadlocked presidential election. The candidates, PACs and powerbrokers try everything to get him to vote their way...or stop the vote entirely. (NOTE: written in ’95. Scriptapalooza 2001 - 2nd place. NOT Costner and Stern's "Swing Vote," which was written in 2007. Script was sent to Stern's first producer in 9/00. Said producer also worked on previous Costner films. Suspect it was lifted.)
