Why Tuesday?

Get Involved

Our YouTube facelift

Saturday, June 30th, 2007

If you’ve logged onto our YouTube page recently, you might have noticed that the page looks a little different. We’ve put up some new artwork and organized the videos to make them more accessible. Take a look:

New here? Why Tuesday? is a nonpartisan effort to increase voter participation by encouraging a national debate about election reform. In the United States, the world’s most famous democracy, the problem of the vanishing voter is so bad that we lag behind almost every nation on Earth in voter turnout! The question “why do we vote on Tuesday?” spurs other important questions about weaknesses in our democracy, and Why Tuesday? is dedicated to addressing them.

While we gear up our game plan for the 2008 election, spend some time over at youtube.com/WHYTUESDAY and catch up on our first “season” of videos. The LA Times called the videos “an amusing cross between civics lesson and campaign-trail ‘gotcha.'” Stay tuned here and to our YouTube page for updates about our next adventure! Contact us here.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
