This fall, Why Tuesday? is going to relaunch with a brand new interactive website, documentary video series and a new set of election issues to talk about. We want to include you and your stories in the series, so we set up this new homepage so you can get in touch with us.

Have you had an adventure or misadventure at the polls? Wondered why politics happens the way it does? Go to whytuesday.org and let us know about your personal experience with American democracy. Invite us to your town. We want to tell your story, as I explain in this video:
