Senator Arlen Specter (R – PA): “No real reason” we vote on Tuesdays
Wednesday, October 25th, 2006
Introducing Jake Soboroff and Barnett Zitron, the GOTW road team. While you good people out there in Internet-ville explore Why Tuesday’s home site and go about getting and posting your own clips, they’ll be traveling around the country, talking to leaders about election reform and asking the question. Check back here for regular updates.
And now, from Jake:
For our first stop, we caught up with Arlen Specter at an open house at Drexel University. Senator Specter is a 26-year veteran in the Senate and Chairman of the Judiciary Committee; he’s a leading voice in his Party and the Senate. The Senator was a total gentleman, and clearly cares about election reform and voter engagement. But even he didn’t really know the reason we vote on Tuesdays; actually, he thinks that moving Election Day to the weekend might improve turnout.
