Eric Liu is on a campaign to restore America's civic joy. To make voting fun again, with late-night dance parties for Miami voters, participatory election street theater in Akron,Ohio; and a giant election scavenger hunt in Philadelphia. He says there's no such thing as not voting: choosing not to cast a ballot is a vote against your own power.  In this conversation, he argues that ordinary Americans have become "illiterate in power" and explains how to reclaim it.
