April 15, 2002: ELECTION DAY has won the 2002 Windsong International Film Festival.

March 15, 2002: Election Day is entering the final stages of production. FINALLY!!!!! Stay tuned for more exciting updates.
February 27, 2002: Pictures will be uploaded soon that were taken during the McBride Brothers flying experience with Mercury Air. There are around 10-15 more scenes that need to be filmed. And then editing this monster.
February 18, 2002: TMB just filmed on an airplane Sunday morning and afternoon and actually were allowed to fly the plane. They have lots of in flight footage, including each one in control of the airplane. They would definately like to thank "Dean, Val, and all the staff at Mercury Air for being so nice and helpful with the filming of the scenes,". So far, just for the record, the brothers have filmed in three states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan) and seven cities (Chicago, Il; Columbia City, IN; Detroit, MI; Fort Wayne, IN; Lancing, MI; Roanoke, IN; South Bend, IN). Not bad for a no-budget movie.
February 8, 2002: The Brothers have about 31 more scenes to shoot.
February 4, 2002: The McBride Brothers would like to thank the extras that did show up for filming this last Saturday. A lot was accomplished and your presence was greatly appreciated.
January 22, 2002: News from the set of ELECTION DAY: The actor originally hired to play a key role has left over creative differences. Nick said, "That whole bit was very complicated because we hadn't been shooting it chronologically so he was all over the movie: beginning and end. And given that Grant's availability was already limited, we have to keep him in those scenes. Hopefully, we will be able to quickly solve the problem in a funny and usual idiotic McBride fashion."
January 10, 2002: For the next week or so, production on ELECTION DAY has been halted. Filming is slated to begin again next Friday, even with the East Noble show on Jan. 19, 2002.
January 7, 2002: After a few weeks of filming, the Brothers say they have around 20% of the filming done. Apparently, Grant was flown in to film over the last two weeks to film his scenes. They do say however that in the future they will be needing extras of both sexes. Stay tuned for more information on that as it comes in.
December 22, 2001: Filming begins today on the first McBride Brother feature film. Also, Kyle has hinted that relocated member Grant may be appearing in the film in a role that will fill you with life.
