Actress, producer, and now director Drew Barrymore just finished her first documentary, The Best Place to Start. She hired a camera crew and spent the past year traveling across the country in order to learn about our voting system—and even more importantly why so many of us aren't voting.

"In order to become more responsible, I decided to pick up a camera, make a documentary and learn along the way. And that's sort of how I educate myself. I sort of pave this road for myself and go, 'Okay, these are the things I want to learn.' I build a college for myself. I wanted to speak to kids. I wanted to understand why voting was so important."
