Before 2020, Ohio had voted for the presidential winner in every election since 1964. Franklin County, the liberal stronghold and most populated county in the state, faced its share of challenges in November 2020: errors in absentee ballots, record in-person early voting turnout, and a polarising political climate with rising coronavirus numbers. Party Line documents the experience of those who waited in line to ensure their votes were counted, revealing a public event that encompasses everything from last-minute political campaigning to a dance party in a hailstorm. As individuals from all walks of life wait in line, contradicting ideologies come into collision and community finds various forms.
